NEW HAVEN MAYOR TERRY E. McDONALD COMMENTS ON PARKER HANNIFIN ANNOUNCEMENT

New Haven, Indiana – Mayor Terry McDonald offers the following comments in reaction to the recent announcement from Parker Hannifin in New Haven. The City of New Haven has been advised of Parker Hannifin’s plans to close their manufacturing facility at the Rose Avenue location here in New Haven. Mayor McDonald has been in contact with the company and has received information that Parker Hannifin is working with each of their employees that will be affected by this decision. Mayor McDonald said, “The City of New Haven is of course deeply saddened to hear the news that 150 people will no longer be working at the Parker Hannifin facility. In light of this upcoming closure, we will continue to work with our partners at the New Haven Chamber of Commerce, Work One, and GFW, Inc. as we find ways to help the families affected by the closure. We will work aggressively to market and find a company to fill the building at this property.” The elimination of any jobs is always of great concern, and we will work with our partners at Northeast Indiana Works and the WorkOne Northeast Center to assist affected individuals.
