Last Thursday 41 employees of the Chromalloy facility in Carson City, Nev. were informed their positions are being eliminated. “We experienced a decline in our Carson City facility and after review of the business and industry environment we announced the reduction to better align the business with the marketplace,” a spokesman for the company told AIN. The reduction in force came across the board and includes both hourly and salaried employees in all of the facility’s functions. Approximately 380 employees remain after the latest round of cutbacks. The reduction in force began in December 2008, when 150 workers were eliminated from a workforce of 540. A second reduction occurred in September 2010, when an additional 91 employees were let go. Chromalloy is a supplier of FAA-approved replacement parts and maintenance, repair and overhaul for gas turbines used in aviation and land-based applications. The 160,000-sq-ft facility, which opened in 1991, specializes in coatings and repair of industrial and aero gas turbines, including the GE LM1600, 2500, 5000 and 6000, and variants of the CF6; variants of the CFM56; and the Pratt & Whitney JT8D-200 and PW2000. The Carson City facility is one of 18 Chromalloy manufacturing/repair facilities worldwide.
