Maysville factory laying off 30

Emerson Power Transmission Solutions in Maysville is laying off 30 employees. The company told the workers earlier this month, noting it's a continuation of plans announced in January to consolidate operations in the city. The company plans to close its manufacturing operation on Second Street, though administration, sales, marketing and engineering personnel will continue to operate in the facility, said spokesman Dave Baldridge. In total, the consolidation will cut 80 jobs with the remaining coming between now and April 2012 when manufacturing at the site is expected to cease. The company will continue to operate its manufacturing location on Progress Way, Baldridge said.
