Northrop Grumman announces 210 layoffs in Texas

Northrop Grumman Corp., which makes the B-2 bomber and unmanned aircraft used by the U.S. military, says about 210 people working at the company's facility in Fort Hood will be laid off in February.

The company informed the Texas Workforce Commission that the employees will lose their jobs around Feb. 29. The company was required under the Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification (WARN) Act to inform the commission of the layoffs.

The company manufactures and produces an array of aerospace, navigation, radar and other systems used by the U.S. military.

It's unclear how many people work at the company's Fort Hood facility.
