Tex­tron con­firms 45 lay­offs at Bal­ti­more Co. fa­cil­ity

Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD - — Natalie Sher­man

A Rhode Is­land firm that man­u­fac­tures drones for the mil­i­tary is lay­ing off about 4 per­cent of the work­force at its Bal­ti­more County plant. Tex­tron Sys­tems no­ti­fied 45 em­ploy­ees of the de­ci­sion on Thurs­day, spokesman Matthew Col­pitts wrote in an email. He at­trib­uted the move to a “change in the mix of work,” say­ing the cuts were nec­es­sary to main­tain prof­itable growth in the busi­ness. Tex­tron em­ploys more than 1,000 peo­ple at its Bal­ti­more County fa­cil­ity, once op­er­ated by AAI Corp., which Tex­tron ac­quired in 2007.
