EUPORA, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Eupora manufacturing company has rescinded a layoff that went into effect earlier this month.

Officials with Ansell Hawkeye, Inc. announced the decision Friday morning.

The company, which employees 100 workers at the Webster County facility, announced plans in April to permanently layoff as many as 60 production workers.

The layoffs were originally scheduled to go into effect on May 9.

The company manufactures combat and utility work gloves.

The layoffs were in response to a loss of a military contract.

Company officials at the time said they had no plans to close the plant and hoped the downturn was temporary.

Ansell Hawkeye's headquarters is also located in Eupora.

The company also operates a manufacturing facility in Waynesboro, but that plant was not affect by the layoffs.
