BRADFORD, Pa. (AP) -- Zippo Manufacturing Co. has laid off 80 employees, citing improved efficiencies and operating capabilities.
The Bradford-based company had laid off 35 workers in June, citing a decline in business. Thursday's layoff accounted for more than 15 percent of its work force.
Zippo's business has been affected by the anti-smoking movement, Transportation Safety Administration regulations and counterfeits.
For years, Zippo was McKean County's largest employer, but last year it was passed by a hospital.
