Northrop Grumman Laying Off 200+ From Fort Worth Facility

FORT WORTH (AP) – The manufacturer of the B-2 bomber and unmanned aircraft used by the U.S. military says about 210 people working at the company’s facility in Fort Worth will be laid off in February.

Herndon, Va.-based Northrop Grumman Technical Services, Inc. says in a letter to the Texas Workforce Commission the employees will lose their jobs around Feb. 29. The company was required under the Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification (WARN) Act to inform the commission of the layoffs.

The company manufactures and produces an array of aerospace, navigation, radar and other systems used by the U.S. military.

It’s unclear how many people work at the company’s Fort Worth facility.
