Bendix announces layoffs at Kentucky plant

| 11/1/2006

Another company has announced it will lay off workers in anticipation of a slump in new truck sales next year.

Bendix - which makes brakes, compressors and other truck components - announced Wednesday, Nov. 1, that it will cut 125 jobs at its plant in Frankfort, KY.

A company press release said a big pre-buy this year, combined with the high cost of the '07 models, is expected to drive down demand for new trucks.
