Daniel International Corp., a Northern California subsidiary of Irvine-based Fluor Corp., has been awarded two contracts valued at a total of $42 million by Lockheed's missiles and space subsidiary.
The contracts call for Daniel to build a 54,000-square-foot metals processing facility that will provide room for cleaning and painting space vehicles as well as a 96,000-square-foot "anechoic" facility with rooms that simulate the environment of outer space. A spokesman for Fluor said that both projects will be built in Sunnyvale and are expected to be completed by April, 1987.
Just four months after opening an Orange County facility, Megatronics Inc., a Tempe, Ariz., manufacturer of equipment used to make and refurbish printed circuit boards, announced that it will lay off the bulk of its employees in Anaheim.
Company spokesman Glen Hines said the move to reduce its staff to eight from 32 is a result of slow business.
