DENISON, TX -- Workers at a local business learned they are getting some unexpected time off, after the manufacturer instituted furloughs.

Some employees at Caterpillar on F.M. 1417 have been furloughed for up to a month. The company says the first quarter has been slow, and they are taking these steps to bring production in line with demand.

According to spokesman Jim Dugan, the layoffs are temporary, and will position the Illinois-based company for future success. An estimated 460 workers make blast drills at the Denison facility.
