B.C.-based Avcorp cutting 75 jobs at California fabrication plant
Fresh cuts add to elimination of 180 temporary positions in last 90 days
VANCOUVER—Canadian aerospace components company Avcorp Industries Inc. is cutting 75 jobs at its composite fabrication plant in Gardena, California.
The B.C.-based company said the move will generate “significant” cost savings at the facility, which currently makes parts for three separate Boeing Co. aircraft programs as well as the Lockheed Martin F-35.
“While these decisions were not taken lightly, they are intended to protect our people and capabilities, stabilize our processes and optimize our work flows so that we deliver world-class performance to our customers,” Peter George, the company’s CEO, said in a statement.
Avcorp notified workers of the cuts Oct. 24 and plans to complete the restructuring by the end of the year.
The company has also eliminated 180 temporary positions at the West Coast plant over the last 90 days.
