CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A business slowdown has prompted a Carson City supplier of turbine engine components to lay off 100 workers.
Chromalloy Nevada officials told the Nevada Appeal that the layoffs were ordered partly because of reductions in military spending and the flat economy in Europe and Asia.
Chromalloy provides high-tech repairs and engine components for commercial airlines and the military at its two Carson City facilities.
It's at least the fourth announcement of layoffs the company has made over the last four years.
The latest layoffs reduce the company's total workforce in Carson City to about 280, down from a high of 540 in December 2008.
The layoffs affected both hourly and salaried positions.
Chromalloy officials say employees losing their jobs were provided severance packages.
