FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- A Virginia company says it is closing its operations at Fort Bragg and will lay off some 450 workers. The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday that CSC Applied Technology Group employs mostly aircraft mechanics for maintenance and repair of equipment at Fort Bragg's Simmons Army Airfield. Company officials told the North Carolina Department of Commerce that the contract expires Aug. 31 and there are no plans to renew. CSC was given contracts at Fort Bragg and several other military basses worth $347 million in 2009. The Falls Church, Va., company says in its required notice to the state that other jobs affected may include quality control inspectors, supply technicians and flight simulator/instructor pilots.
