Siemens Energy is planning to lay off 500 workers at its plant in Olean.
State Senator George Borrello says the company is going to keep 300 jobs at the plant. He says there are 100 openings in Painted Post and Houston, Texas. The laid off workers can apply for those positions.
Siemens took over the plant in Olean in 2014 after purchasing the site from Dresser-Rand. The German company is planning to lay off 7,800 workers worldwide by 2025.
