YORK, Pa. -- Heavy machinery manufacturer Caterpillar Inc. is considering closing its distribution facility in central Pennsylvania.
The York Distribution Center in Springettsbury Township employs 250 people. Caterpillar spokesman Jim Dugan says the workers were notified in September about the possibility the facility could move elsewhere in the eastern U.S.
The company says it will decide by March whether to move. If it happens, the move would take effect next year.
In 1998, the Illinois-based company closed its larger manufacturing operation at the Pennsylvania site, cutting more than 1,000 jobs locally. That spot is now a business center.
Caterpillar is the largest maker in the world of construction and mining equipment.
