Recycling Equipment developer Marathon Equipment, is closing its Clearfield,
Pennsylvania manufacturing plant effective May 15, 2009. “'Due to poor economic
conditions, production of the Clearfield plant is being consolidated with the
Vernon plant. We greatly appreciate the dedication and contribution of the
Clearfield employees since the plant’s opening in 1989,' says Mike Beuke, VP of
Operations at the US company.

Marathon officials are working closely with the PA Dislocated Workers Unit to
help the 71 employees impacted by this closing to find other jobs in the
community. Workers will continue employment with benefits for 60 days from the
announced plant closing on March 17, 2009. According to the Vernon, Alabama
headquartered company, it is also working with employees to take advantage of
educational opportunities offered by local agencies or schools. In addition,
Marathon is offering employees outplacement counseling to include onsite
computer access and resume and interview training
