Military Contractor Cuts 145 Jobs in Anniston

Posted: Updated:

145 workers in the Anniston area are preparing to find new jobs. It comes as a major defense contractor closes a plant. BAE systems will shut down a plant that upgrades and overhauls military vehicles by the end of the year. The company says it doesn't need the site because a decrease in the use of tracked combat vehicles has resulted in less need for maintenance work.
BAE Systems says the closure doesn't affect two other facilities in Anniston, site of the Army's huge Anniston Army Depot. The company is the world's second-largest defense contractor.
