Kennedy Trucking Co. in Aliquippa, about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. The company is based in Kearny, N.J.The company's executive vice president, Dave Scureman, says the layoffs were prompted by a drop in business by the trucking company's primary customer, USG Corp., which operates a wallboard plant.The layoffs will leave about seven mechanics and administrative staff at the Aliquippa operation. Scureman says it's not clear what may happen to those workers.___Information from: Beaver County Times, http://www.timesonline.com/
