The contractors are needed to prepare the Fremont property for “marketing and sale,” Solyndra bankruptcy attorneys said in filings, adding that the company doesn’t have enough employees to do the work on its own.
Most of Solyndra’s employees were laid off last year. The company had employed about 1,100 people, but an earlier bankruptcy filing shows fewer than 100 remain.
To keep workers from leaving, the company this week won permission from U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Mary Walrath to pay out more than $300,000 in incentive bonuses to 20 key employees, mostly in the finance and engineering departments.
The company also won approval this week to hire Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. to help sell Solyndra’s property.
