The BAE Systems facility in York, Pennsylvania will be reducing its employee base by approximately 135 people over the next three months, according to a release issued by the company this afternoon. Nearly one third of the reductions are due to current programs ending, with the remaining employees impacted as part of rate reductions within the Bradley Industrial Base.
The York Facility is entering its lowest production levels in the program’s 30+ year history, but the company continues to work closely with the Army to maintain as much of the base as possible, according to Site Communications Manager Randy Coble. BAE is working on a conversion contract that would extend the Bradley line through mid-2015, but at a significantly reduced level.
BAE Systems says it remains committed to its employees, and will provide advance notice of the layoff to those affected by the reductions.
The company’s leadership would also like to recognize and thank the residents of the York area for their support and understanding.
