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.
