Paris plant laying off 2/3 of work force

PARIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Nobel Automotive of Paris, which makes hoses and tubing for cars, is laying off two-thirds of its work force.

Plant officials told The Paris Post-Intelligencer that 44 of its 66 employees will be laid off within the next 60 days because of the failing economy.

Twenty-two other employees who had previously been temporarily laid off will now be considered permanently laid off.

Orhan Holding, a Turkish company, purchased the plant from Dana Corp. in 2007.
