Pace American may close Indiana trailer plant

Associated Press | A northern Indiana cargo trailer maker says
it may close its plant in the city of Middlebury — a move that would
cost 150 workers their jobs. Illinois-based Pace American Inc. notified
the state of the possible closing late last week, saying it is in the
process of selling its business operations and assets.

If the northern Indiana plant closes, Pace American CEO Jim Tennant says the decision is likely to be permanent. Pace American’s plant employs 118 hourly and 32 salaried workers.

A closure of the Middlebury plant would be another blow for Elkhart County, where 14.1 percent of the work force was unemployed in April, the last month for which state statistics are available.

Pace American has other plants in Texas, Utah, Georgia and Oregon.

    Hello ,In order to receive an accurate quote for auto insurance personal information such as address, date of birth, drivers license number, and social security number are required. This is exactly the information identity thieves need to destroy your financial credibility. Another concern is unwanted solicitors contacting you. It is completely unnecessary to receive an accurate quote for your car insurance by submitting this information online. It does indeed make perfect sense to make contact with an insurance agent in person or on the telephone.When contacting an agent in person or on the phone be sure and ask a few questions of your own, such as, how long they have been in business, and how will they safeguard your personal information. If you don’t like the answers say thanks and hang up. If your reasonably confident with the person your speaking to then proceed. Another benefit of speaking with a “live” agent is your ability to ask questions and receive professional advice.
