ITT transfers some jobs from Goulds Pa. plant to Seneca Falls

Goulds Pumps Inc., a subsidiary of ITT Corp., is reducing its work force at its eastern Pennsylvania plant by 86 workers and moving some of the processes from there to its headquarters in Seneca Falls, Seneca County.
The company said Tuesday it would move its slurry and pump assembly, testing and order entry processes to the Seneca Falls site. The move is expected to be completed in the first quarter.
“We’ve analyzed market and production data for the last year, and we’ve determined that this product line transfer and other process moves are necessary for us to maintain our competitive position in the global marketplace,” said Ken Napolitano, president of ITT Industrial Process, in a statement.
ITT said the Pennsylvania workers affected by the move will have the opportunity to apply for new positions in Seneca Falls. The Ashland, Pa. facility employs 310 people. The company did not say how many new jobs would be created in Seneca Falls.
In October, Goulds Pumps said it would spend $10 million to renovate its Seneca County site and add some 60 jobs. The company is using a $1.5 million Empire State Development Corp. grant and $500,000 in other state incentives to help fund the project.
