An Irvine, California-based information technology distributor announced last week it will lay off about 937 workers at its Fort Worth office.
Ingram Micro Mobility, a division of Ingram Micro, said it is eliminating 762 contract workers and 175 employees at the Fort Worth location at 4500 Cambridge Road. The contract workers are with Elwood Staffing. The company cited recent business losses in its notice filed with the Texas Workforce Commission. The layoffs are set to begin Aug. 19 and continue through Sept. 20, according to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) letter filed with the TWC.
Ingram Micro will have about 350 workers in the area following the layoffs. The Fort Worth facility is part of Ingram Micro Mobility, which provides “device lifecycle services” including warehousing, software loading and end-user fulfillment, according to the company.
On June 27, Ingram Micro’s shareholders approved a $6 billion buyout offer from Tianjin Tianhai, a subsidiary of HNA Group, a Chinese conglomerate.
