Chromalloy lays off more employees

Carson City’s biggest manufacturer, Chromalloy Nevada, has laid off more employees because of a continued slow down in business, a spokesman with the business’ parent company said today.

The 75 workers laid off this week at the jet engine parts manufacturing and repair company may be rehired in January if the airline flights pick up soon, said Andrew Farrant of parent company New York-based Sequa Corp.

“We hope this economic storm is going to lift,” Farrant said.

Chromalloy Nevada laid off about 80 employees earlier this month. This leaves the business with 484 at its two locations in Carson City.

Chromalloy Nevada’s Industrial Park Drive location opened in 1990 and the larger Arrowhead Drive location opened in 1991.

Sequa has Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corporation plants in 21 U.S. cities and in nine countries. The Carlyle Group, an international equity firm, owns Sequa.
