PLANO - Flextronics — the electronics manufacturing and assembly company — is laying off local workers for the second time in two years.
The company plans to cut 168 employees at its Plano plant in phases between October and the end of the year as it consolidates two Texas sites.
“We regret the need to take this action as it is always difficult to initiate a mass layoff,” Flextronics human resources manager Maureen Armstrong said. “This decision was not taken lightly and is the direct result of a change in Flextronics’ strategy to consolidate our Plano Global Operations Group into our Austin Global Operations Group.”
Flextronics said it is trying to place some affected workers at other company sites and even plans to contact nearby employers about job openings.
