None of the approximately 180 layoffs Harley-Davidson announced Tuesday will affect workers at the company’s plant in Springettsbury Township, company spokeswoman Bernadette Lauer said.
The bulk of the layoffs will occur at Harley’s plants in Kansas City, Mo., and Menomonee Falls, Wis., the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The Milwaukee-based motorcycle maker Tuesday reported a 7.7 percent drop in second-quarter earnings as U.S. sales fell 9.3 percent in the three months ended June 25.
Earlier rounds of layoffs affected workers at the plant on Route 30 in Springettsbury Township.
The company announced in April it was eliminating 118 jobs there and moving those positions to Kansas City where it consolidated production of its Softail motorcycles.
That followed the elimination of approximately 117 positions in Springettsbury Township announced in August 2016.
The most recent job cuts left Harley with about 800 employees in Springettsbury Township, down from about 2,000 hourly workers in 2009.
