DeWitt (WSYR-TV) - A plant in the town of DeWitt announced it will be relocating 72 jobs to its operations in Monterrey, Mexico on Thursday.

The Advanced Motors and Drives plant owned by the Nidec-Kinetek Corporation confirmed it will reduce the workforce at its location on East Molloy Road near Hancock International Airport.

The 72 non-union, hourly positions will be phased out over the next three to six months.

Nidec-Kinetek says some manufacturing will continue at the plant along with office and support staff.

The plant designs and manufactures special motors, pumps and steering applications for lift trucks, golf carts, utility vehicles, scissor lifts, boom lifts and more.

The company says the restructuring is based on its need to provide service to its global customers based on six continents.
