“As a result of declining customer volume, we regretfully must shut down certain manufacturing operations related to our engine business, including the production facility in Dunlap, TN,” said Kevin Brady, director of Operations.
“Affected employees have been notified pursuant to state, federal and local law, and we will do our best to provide them with information regarding dislocated worker assistance through the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development.”
