LYSANDER, N.Y. (AP) - A central New York company that designs and makes electronic controls for manufacturers of commercial appliances is closing its plant in suburban Syracuse.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse says (http://bit.ly/1BUPhaV ) Solid State Advanced Controls plans to close its operation near Baldwinsville and lay off its workforce of 47 people. The company said in a notice filed with the state Department of Labor that layoffs at its Radisson Corporate Park facility will begin Sept. 1 and be completed by the end of the year.

Workers affected are a combination of regular employees and temporary contract workers. The facility does not have a labor union.

The company has had three different owners in the past 14 years. Chicago-based Littelfuse Inc., which has more than 7,000 employees worldwide, acquired it in January 2014.
