Why the Mercer truck driver is retiring

In a recent interview, the former driver for the trucking giant said his company is looking for a new driver to work at its new manufacturing plant in South Carolina, the first major plant for its new Mercer subsidiary.

The company, which is looking to expand manufacturing capacity and add more jobs in the United States and Europe, is moving its manufacturing operations to a new state, which will likely require the departure of several drivers and their drivers.

That could cost $6 billion to $7 billion, according to a report from the firm.

A company spokesperson did not respond to requests for comment.

The driver said he expects to be replaced by another driver within six months.

“I just don’t have the patience to sit on the sidelines and wait,” the former Mercer driver, who asked not to be identified, said in an interview.

“If it takes longer than six months, I’ll be leaving.” 

Mercer has been laying off drivers since November. 

Its announcement this month that it was laying off about 200 of its 3,000 workers in a bid to cut costs and focus on its new operations prompted a flurry of complaints from workers, many of whom have filed lawsuits seeking compensation for lost hours. 

The company said it would not lay off any more drivers. 

“We believe in our ability to produce and deliver to our customers and our customers are going to love this plant,” Mercer chief executive Andrew Schulman said in a statement.

“We will continue to grow and expand, but our plan is to move quickly to take our manufacturing operations from South Carolina to North Carolina and beyond.” 

The driver said the company was “working with our partners to find a replacement driver.” 

“It’s going to be tough to find someone who has been at the company longer than I have,” he said. 

One of the people who will likely be replaced will be a former Mercury truck driver who worked for the company for 18 years.

He said he was a veteran with a family to support and who had a good relationship with his wife and children. 

As Mercer prepares to open a plant in North Carolina, it will be the third plant for the Mercys new subsidiary.

It’s also the first of its kind in the U.S. and Europe. 

Mercers parent company, United Technologies, is a key shareholder in Mercer. 

President and CEO Anthony Costello told investors last week that the company would invest about $1 billion to invest in the plants and create 250 new jobs in North America, where the company expects to invest about a billion dollars in the next five years. 

United Technologies has invested about $3 billion in North American plants, according the company. 

On Monday, the company announced that it would invest $300 million to expand its plant in Wisconsin. 

Costello also said he would invest another $200 million to add a second facility in Pennsylvania. 

Shares of United Technologies were up 2.6% in midday trading on Tuesday, while Mercer was down 1.7%. 

The truck driver said his experience at Mercer made him an ideal candidate for the job. 

A Mercer spokesperson said the driver has had experience at other companies and has “been a loyal employee for 20 years.” 

It’s a tough decision for a driver to leave the company, he said, but the company is making a good decision. 

 The Mercer plant will produce parts for the trucks used by the United Technologies subsidiary that make parts for Boeing, General Electric, United Airlines and other U.K. airlines. 

That’s why the driver said Mercer’s move was “huge,” especially because the company had invested in the Wisconsin plant with its $3-billion investment. 

Last month, the United Airlines plant in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, closed for good.
