Jabil Inc., one of the largest companies in the Tampa Bay region, has notified California officials that it will cut over 200 jobs. This comes a few months after the company temporarily shut down several plants in the state and laid off more than 1,000 employees during the holiday season.
Jabil, a technology component manufacturer, has sent two letters to the state informing that this time the layoffs will be permanent. The letters state that over 200 affected employees at two facilities in the northern part of California will be let go on March 7th.
A total of 39 people who are losing their jobs work at a plant located at 122 Lindbergh Ave., Livermore, while 166 people work at a plant located at 4050 Technology Place, Fremont.
“The letter says, “All affected employees have been notified of their separation date, and that this action will be permanent.”
“Jabil has made the difficult decision to reduce the number of employees at the two sites based on a change in customer demand and business needs,” the company said in a statement.
