Flextronics to wind down in Limerick, Ireland
The EMS-provider Flextronics is to lay off an additional 150 staff at its facility in Limerick, Ireland, between May and autumn this year.
Last November, the EMS-provider had already announced to cut its Limerick workforce by 118 as a responce to the weakening global economy. Major reason for the cut backs is that the facilities main customer - Dell - has announced to move production from Limerick to its new facility in Poland. Flextronics and the union have started consultations about the pending layoffs - concerning severance packages and the final wind down of the Limerick business, local media reports.
