More than two dozen employees of the former Endicott Interconnect Technologies, now i3, are out of a job.  President Robert Nead has announced 28 workers were let go from the Endicott company.

Lower than expected sales orders were cited for the layoffs.

EIT was purchased out of bankruptcy last year and, in November, the company became i3 and gained a new president.

The company had sought incentives in exchange for maintaining its workforce level of around 500.  However, i3 has continued to trim jobs.

Nead could not immediately say if more layoffs may be coming during the continuing transitional period.
