Thomasville-- More than 150 people in Thomasville will be temporarily out of work.
The Caterpillar factory in Thomasville is one of five plants selected for the furlough. Another Georgia Caterpillar factory in Jefferson is also on the list. The furlough is expected to last one to three weeks and will impact more than 3,000 employees.
The Caterpillar plant in Thomasville produces fuel injectors for diesel engines. One-hundred-fifty-four people work at that plant, and company officials say nearly all of the workers will be layed-off. The temporary lay-off will most likely be in December.
The Thomasville plant has been in operation since 1998.
