Parker Hannifin Corp. will be laying off 46 workers at its Manhattan, Kan., industrial rubber hose plant.

Jim Cartwright, a spokesman for the Cleveland-based Parker Hannifin, says work force reductions at the plant will start Jan. 5. He says the Manhattan operation will still employ 139 people.

Cartwright says the number of employees cut could change after Jan. 5 with laid-off workers possibly being recalled. He says it depends on the market and possible changes during the global recession.

Parker Hannifin manufactures rubber hoses for various industries. Cartwright says the hydraulic hoses are used in several types of vehicles.
