Cat To Close 2 More Facilities, Possible 880 Jobs Cut

Continued restructuring moves may also shutter Illinois locomotive engine plant

March 16, 2018

Reuters reports Caterpillar will close its Work Tools complex in Waco, Texas by the end of the year. Those operation will be transferred to a Cat facility in Wamego, Kansas. The closing does not involve the Caterpillar distribution center in Waco. 200 jobs will be cut.

Cat is also closing a demostration center in Panama and is also considering shifting engine manufacturing at its Progress Rail Services unit in La Grange, Ill., to Winston-Salem, N.C. If that decision is made, more than 600 jobs will be lost.

Caterpillar continues to undergo a reorganization announced in 2015 that it said would slash between 5,000 and 10,000 jobs by this year, according to information on the company website.
