The company plans to lay off 106 people in University Park, 76 people in Carbondale, 78 people in Mount Prospect and 70 people in Bartonville, near Peoria.

The notices do not provide details about the jobs or the lost contract. The company did not immediately return a telephone message Wednesday seeking comment.

The state's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification requires companies to give the state advance notice before mass layoffs.
