Dassault Falcon announced today the layoff of 72 workers at the Little Rock Completion Center with additional workers taking advantage of an “early out” program. The Center’s total workforce is now approximately 2,000 employees.
“Dassault Falcon has worked tirelessly to adjust to these difficult economic times. While the global economy has shown some promise recently, the market for business jets remains challenged,” said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault Falcon.
“The number of workers affected by this reduction, unfortunately, is in line with our order cancellations. We used utmost care in our selection to ensure their loss would not impact the current Falcon delivery schedule.”
