MAPLETON Ill. (WMBD) — Caterpillar has decided to temporarily shutdown the Mapleton location due to a change in customer demand.

We are taking a variety of actions at our global facilities to align production with customer demand, including temporary facility shutdowns at our Mapleton, Ill. location.

Over the weekend, WMBD was told that Caterpillar would continue to operate its facilities in Illinois during the Governor’s “stay at home” order during the COVID-19 outbreak.

At this point, there is no word on how long the Mapleton location will be closed.
