(Steelton) -- A company that makes and coats steel pipe used in the natural gas and oil industry plans to lay off 180 workers at a Dauphin County plant.

Dura-Bond Industries disclosed the layoffs at its Steelton plant in a notice filed with the state Department of Labor and Industry.

The layoffs will begin about November 15th.

United Steelworkers Local 1688 says the move will leave the Dura-Bond Pipe Steelton plant with about 220 union workers.

The union says most of those being laid off are new hires, and will likely not be brought back.

The company is based in Export in western Pennsylvania.
