ERIE, Pa. (AP) - Lord Corp. is cutting 92 jobs at three northwestern Pennsylvania plants as part of a restructuring plan that will trim 270 jobs worldwide.

The Erie Times-News (https://bit.ly/1NuiS41 ) reports Lord is laying off 20 workers and eliminating the other jobs by having 72 others take voluntary retirement at facilities in Summit Township, Erie County, and Cambridge Springs and Saegertown plants in Crawford County. The company employed almost 1,200 workers in those plants.

Lord was founded in Erie in 1924 but is now based in Cary, North Carolina.

The company makes products and systems that manage mechanical motion, noise and vibration, along with specialty adhesives and coatings used in the transportation, aerospace and defense industries.

Lord has nearly 3,200 employees worldwide, but plans to cut 143 through layoffs and 130 through retirements.
