Cleaver-Brooks said Friday that it laid off 25 employees at its Lincoln plant at 6940 Cornhusker Highway.
Debbie Dryden, a spokeswoman for the Georgia-based maker of industrial boilers, said the move was made "to rightsize its workforce in line with market needs." She blamed the need for the layoff on a "prolonged slump in investments in some of the markets we serve."
The Lincoln plant makes industrial water tube boilers that are used in the extraction of heavy crude oil from oil sands fields in Canada.
In 2014, the plant expanded and hired workers to keep up with demand from the booming oil industry, which has since slumped.
This is the second layoff in a year at the Lincoln plant, which cut 30 jobs in February 2016.
Dryden said the Lincoln plant now has 214 employees.
