Comlux America LLC has furloughed 79 of its employees and says it is "probable" those workers will be permanently laid off by the end of the month.

Comlux, which operates an aircraft completion and maintenance center near Indianapolis International Airport, said in a notice to the state posted Monday that the workers were furloughed on Jan. 3 because of a "work slowdown."

Comlux said it originally intended to bring those employees back after two weeks, but now expects to permanently dismiss them unless the company signs "another aircraft or receives additional funding" before the end of the month.

More than 300 employees worked at Comlux as of late October.
