ROCHESTER - Albany International Corp., which supplies parts used in the embattled Boeing 737 Max's engines, laid off 36 people from their Rochester manufacturing facility earlier this month, a company spokesperson confirmed on Friday.

There is no official word on why the layoffs were necessary, but it's likely the reason is the plane made by Boeing is grounded till it gets a government OK to put them back in the air.

The groundings began last March after two Max 737s crashed within six months, killing almost 350 people.

Those who were laid off might be back working soon, however, as Boeing CEO David Calhoun said on Wednesday he expected the Max 737s to be back in the air in March.
