AUBURN, N.Y. -- Despite the efforts of local lawmakers, attempts to get Daikin McQuay to stay in Auburn have failed. More than 300 company employees will soon be out of work.
The heating and air conditioning company announced in late February that it would be moving it's Auburn facility to Tennessee by the end of 2014.
State Senator Mike Nozzolio and other officials are now asking the State Department of Labor to help assist the hundreds of employees who will be laid off. They're requesting resources for ex-employees to help them find new jobs.
Lawmakers also want education and retraining assistance available.
In the past, Auburn leaders were able to come up with plans to help the company stay, but that did not work this time.
