American Technical Ceramics Corp. filed a notice with state and city officials last week saying it is laying off 24 workers at its Jacksonville plant, as part of a previously announced plan to cut 92 jobs.

The company, which makes electronic components, filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification in January saying it would lay off the workers because it is moving a product group to its parent company’s facility in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

A follow-up WARN notice last week said the first phase of 24 layoffs came in April and the second phase affecting 24 more jobs will be completed between Aug. 30 and Sept. 12.

Both WARN notices said the company will retain 80 workers at its Jacksonville facility at 2201 Corporate Square Blvd. after the layoffs are complete.

ATC was an independent public company before being acquired in 2007 for $231 million by competitor AVX, which is based in Myrtle Beach.

The company had 287 employees in Jacksonville when it was acquired by AVX.
