Caterpillar Inc. announced plans to lay off more than 2400 employees at five plants in Illinois, Indiana, and Georgia.

The company said 2365 support and management workers had been notified of layoffs expected to last at least six months — including 245 announced previously — and 89 workers will be let go permanently.

Among the affected workers are 1726 people at plants in Illinois. In Indiana, Caterpillar said it notified 439 employees at its large engine factory in Lafayette of layoffs also expected to last at least six months.

Caterpillar notified 89 employees at its Jefferson, GA, U.S., fuel systems plant that they would be laid off permanently when the company closes the facility, expected by the end of June. Work currently done at the plant will be shifted to factories in Thomasville, GA, and Pontiac, IL.

Also in Georgia, Caterpillar said it had notified 200 employees at a plant in Griffin, where the company makes generators, engines, and oil service units, of layoffs scheduled to begin in May. The company also has implemented so-called rolling layoffs, which vary in duration, at plants across the U.S. and around the world, according to Jim Dugan, a Caterpillar spokesman.
