Manitowoc to temporarily shut down certain mobile production lines in Q4
"Orders and backlog for the company declined double digits during the third quarter, and these trends have continued into the fourth quarter. Subsequently, we've significantly reduced our production build schedules for Mobile products to reflect these lower incoming order rates. In addition, we are accelerating the relocation of the Manitowoc crawler production to Shady Grove, taking additional headcount reductions, reducing other non-employee costs, and temporarily shutting-down certain mobile production lines during the fourth quarter. While this will negatively affect gross profits for the balance of the year, we believe it will put us in a better position to manage cash flow in the current environment," said Barry Pennypacker, President & CEO.
