WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Hawker Beechcraft Corp. workers have received letters warning that more layoffs are coming at the Wichita-based plane-maker as the company decreases production levels.
The company has a Little Rock section which conducts final aircraft assembly that employed 900 people when the company opened an addition to the plant in October.
A memo Tuesday from Chief Executive Officer Bill Boisture did not say how many more jobs would be lost. The company already has cut nearly 2,800 jobs since late 2008.
Boisture told employees they will be notified within the next few weeks when staffing plans are complete. He says the layoffs will extend across all levels of the company and will occur in stages throughout the year.
Boisture said the company sees further erosion of the economy and a continued decline in consumer demand for new aircraft.
