Caterpillar Announces Layoffs at Indiana Plant

April 6, 2015

Caterpillar announced its plans to layoff 50 full-time production employees and approximately 200 agency workers at its Lafayette, Ind. plant between now and June.

Employees were given notice of the upcoming layoffs.

Caterpillar says the planned layoffs are due to a decrease in engine orders that support the oil and gas industry.
