Editor’s note: Story has been updated to clarify Li-Cycle halted construction of its Rochester project, resulting in the MasTec layoffs.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — MasTec Industrial is layoff off employees in Rochester after Li-Cycle halted construction of its Rochester facility.
MasTec companies focus on complex infrastructure projects around the US with almost 22,000 professionals working for them.
According to a WARN notice filed by the company, the facility on McLaughlin Road will be ceasing operations, resulting in the lay off all 102 employees that work out of that location by November 3.
In a press release earlier this year announcing a federal loan for Rochester-based battery recycling company Li-Cycle, MasTec was announced as being a partner in the company’s expansion project, the construction of which was just put on hold.
