Jabil to lay off 3000 worldwide
The US-based EMS-provider is to lay off 3000 of its worldwide workforce, which will affect 10 of its global manufacturing sites.
The majority of the jobs - 10% - will be lost in the company's US-operations. Jabil currently employs 85,000 people worldwide. The measure is to align manufacturing sites to the current demand situation, as well as to increase operational efficiency. Jabil expects to save $55 million a year as a result of the cuts.
