Thomasville -- Turbine Engine Components Technologies, a Thomasville manufacturing plant announced they're laying off 70 employees in the next few months.
That's a fifth of their current workforce of 350 people.
TECT manufactures semi-finished, and finished components for aircrafts. They say the workers being let go have been working on a military program building spare parts for engines on the C-130 aircraft.
That work is nearing completion and the company does not have enough new contracts to offset the end of the C-130 contract.
