Jabil shutters Poway Plant, 143 workers losing jobs, says report
Jun 11, 2007
Final closure set for September as manufacturing moves offshore..#, according to a report in the San Diego Business Journal
Jabil Circuit Inc. is closing its Poway contract manufacturing plant and recently began laying off its 143 employees.
Calls to the company were referred to Jabil's headquarters in St. Petersburg, Fla., where a spokeswoman said the only information the company is releasing is contained in its regulatory filings.
Last July, Jabil, a $10 billion electronics manufacturer, undertook a corporate restructuring "to better align the company's manufacturing capacity in certain higher cost geographies."
At that time, the company did not reveal what plants or jobs would be affected, but in April Jabil notified the state Employment Development Department it was closing the Poway facility at 13550 Stowe Ave., with final closure set for September.
