Navistar to consolidate midrange engine manufacturing in Illinois

February 21, 2014

Navistar Intl. Corp. will move midrange engine production from its Huntsville, Ala., plant to Melrose Park, Ill. The company will continue to build its 13-l engine at the Huntsville big bore engine plant.

Scheduled for completion in late summer, these actions are expected to eliminate about 280 jobs at Huntsville.

Navistar Intl. Corp. is a holding company with subsidiaries and affiliates that produce commercial and military trucks, diesel engines, and school and commercial buses.
