General Dynamics designs and manufactures products that are utilized in homeland security and defense fields. Cinematographers, filmmakers and new agencies also utilize the products, according to the company’s website.

In July, General Dynamics announced the closing of its Nashua optics plant. The decision to close that plant was part of a cost savings initiative. In March, the company cut its staff at the Coralville call center.

The employees impacted by the closure are expected to separate on December 18, according to the filing.
