Truck trailer makers continue layoffs

February 8, 2008

The slowing economy has prompted two manufacturers of semi-truck trailers to lay off workers.

Wabash National Corp. in Lafayette has temporarily laid off 150 of its 3,265 workers due to receiving fewer orders over the holidays, according to the Journal & Courier of Lafayette.

Great Dane Trailers is laying off 54 workers at its Terre Haute plant after having cut 75 several days ago, according to The Tribune-Star of Terre Haute. About a month ago, the Savannah, Ga., company sent 130 employees home.
