Indianapolis aircraft company cuts nearly 80 jobs


Associated Press

---- — INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A company that runs an aircraft completion and maintenance center near Indianapolis International Airport expects that it will be permanently cutting the jobs of nearly 80 workers.

Comlux America LLC has told the state Department of Workforce Development that the workers were laid off Jan. 3 because of a work slowdown.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports Comlux had more than 300 employees at the Indianapolis facility as of late October.

The subsidiary of a Swiss company says it intended to recall the laid-off employees after two weeks, but now expects to permanently cut those jobs unless it lines up additional work or funding before the end of the month.
