Excavator Manufacturer To Halt Production In South Carolina

A company that makes excavators has announced that it will halt production at a South Carolina plant in May, officials said.

The decision by Houston-based Kobelco Construction Machinery America will impact more than 100 employees at the company’s plant in Moore, WSPA-TV reported.

Two other Kobelco plants — one in West Virginia and another in Canada — faced similar production pauses in recent months, the station reported.
