A Howard County military contractor that abruptly closed its doors and laid off hundreds of workers two weeks ago has resumed limited operations but is negotiating to sell the business.
Daedalean Inc. sent its workers home -- without pay -- on April 26. The company, which has been threatened with a loss of all of its government business because of the tax-evasion convictions of its chief officers, filed a week ago for protection from its creditors under Chapter 11 of the Federal Bankruptcy Act.
About 100 of the 266 workers laid off nationwide last month were recalled and back at work yesterday, said Missy Hall, a spokeswoman for the company. Daedalean has headquarters in Woodbine, manufacturing operations in Columbia and additional facilities in five other states.
