Ingram Micro Mobility, which operates a wireless repair and logistics facility in the Centreport business park in far east Fort Worth, plans to cut 140 more jobs, according to a WARN letter filed with the state.
The letter, dated May 8, attributed the cutbacks to a “recent loss of business at the Company’s facility located at 14500 FAA Boulevard.” The reduced business occurred in the company’s Lifecycle Services unit at the Fort Worth Returns Center, said Damon Wright, executive director of corporate communications for the California-based company, in an email.
Last June, Ingram Micro said it was slashing more than 900 jobs at its facility on Cambridge Road in Centreport, including 762 contract workers. At the time, the company said that would leave about 350 people at the plant.
On Monday, Wright said Ingram Micro would continue to have about 210 jobs at the facility after the new round of cuts.
Ingram Micro took over the Fort Worth operation, once operated by Touchstone Wireless, when it acquired a company called Brightspot in 2012. Last year, Ingram Micro was bought out by a unit of the Chinese conglomerate HNA Group for $6 billion.
Ingram Micro Mobility is a leading provider of device lifecycle services including warehousing, software loading, order and accounts receivable management, end-user fulfillment, and reverse logistics, which includes repair, refurbishment and recycling of wireless devices, primarily smartphones.
The company said the job cuts will be permanent. It anticipates the layoffs, which began last week, will be completed by about Aug. 31.
