Mogul's Mexico decision on hold
Federal Mogul Corp., an industry employing more than 400 workers at Malden, has backed off a Nov. 1 announcement by a company official that the plant will be moving to Puebla, Mexico, which already hosts one Mogul operation.
The final decision was expected Dec. 1, but that date passed without further notice.
Now officials are saying, via memorandum by plant manager Dave Whaley, that "Federal Mogul management has not made a final decision on consolidating the Malden plant into another location." The final decision is now expected early this year.
Federal Mogul, which located at Malden in 1963, has 150 manufacturing plants in 25 countries serving the automotive, industrial and small-engine markets. The company manufactures engine bearings, pistons, piston rings, gaskets, engine and transmission seals and other goods under the band names Champion, Fel-Pro, Wagner, Anco, Moog, Sealed Power and others.
