Royal Engineered Composites to layoff 41 employees

MINDEN, Neb. -- Forty-one employees at a central Nebraska plant are losing their jobs. 

Royal Engineered Composites in Minden announced Tuesday that a commercial aircraft client is shifting production to a "low-cost facility in Mexico." Royal said the layoffs would take place in phases in October, November, and December. 

The company employs 240 workers and makes components which are used in the manufacture of commercial aircraft. Royal did not identify the customer in question, but a company spokesperson said the parts involved support engine nacelle components for an engine built by GE Aviation. 

Severance packages will be offered to employees for working until their release date.
