From the Herald-News:
Caterpillar Inc. has announced the company will move forward with a plan that includes the loss of 230 jobs from the Joliet plant and the move of two production lines to Mexico, according to a company statement released Friday.
The announcement comes just two months after the company first went public about a possible move from the Joliet area. A decision was expected by this month.
“The company has since completed all analysis and determined to remain cost competitive, it must move forward with the transition,” the statement read.
