Workforce Reduction Comes At The SE Kansas Plant
Cessna has notified approximately 75 workers at its
Independence, KS plant that they will be laid off in 60 days. The
workforce reduction is part of a previously-announced plan put in
place by Cessna in its Citation Mustang program.
Mustang sales have been slow, and Cessna has also had supplier
issues which halted deliveries of the jet in June, the company
said. The Wichita Eagle reports that about 200 Cessna employees
took 5-7 week furloughs because of the parts shortage.
The Independence plant also builds 172, 182, and 206 singles.
Those programs, for now, appear to be unaffected by the
