IL: Navistar to lay off 170 workers

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Navistar has announced plans to lay off 170 workers at a facility in Melrose Park, Ill., as it ceases all engine production at that facility by the second quarter of 2018.

“Ending production anywhere is a difficult decision because it affects employees,” said Persio Lisboa, chief operating officer for Navistar, in a statement. “We continue to be committed to investing in our Melrose Park facility as we complete its transformation into a technical center that is integral to our product design, engineering and sales teams. Given the investments we’ve made, we expect to have a significant presence in Melrose Park for years to come.”
