Royal Announces Reduction As Program Transfers To Mexico

Royal Engineered Composites announced 41 of the company’s 240 employees will be affected by a reduction in their workforce later this year. This reduction is a result of one of Royal’s commercial aircraft customers resourcing work to a low-cost facility in Mexico.

“The team here at Royal has consistently delivered strong performance and high quality on this program and many times rose to the challenge and delivered product when others could not,” said Dave Arnold, President of Royal Engineered Composites. “I’m proud of the people here at Royal and their desire to help the customer. There are incredible pressures to reduce costs in commercial aircraft. The customer made the decision to change the materials and design and shift production to a low cost workforce in Mexico.”
