Sitton Motor Lines closing

| 11/5/2009

A 30-year-old trucking company in Joplin, MO, is laying off workers and will soon shut down for good according to the Springfield Business Journal.

The privately owned Sitton Motor Lines has about 250 employees, including leased owner-operators.

Company president Richard Sitton isn’t commenting on why the over-the-road operation is closing, but he does say, “It’s going to be an orderly liquidation.”
