Kodak Alaris cutting 20 employees from Windsor facility
January 25, 2014
Kodak Alaris announced last week about 20 of the 200 current employees at its Windsor facility will be laid off, according to company officials.
The layoffs were announced to the workforce through town hall-style meetings held by Kodak Alaris management Jan. 7.
“The staffing changes are part of a plan to drive productivity improvements at the site,” Kodak Alaris spokeswoman Audrey Jonckheer said. “The changes support Kodak Alaris’ efforts to maintain and grow the business.”
Despite the cuts, the Windsor facility will continue to be a key manufacturing site for Kodak Alaris, Jonckheer said.
“The site is the worldwide supplier of thermal donor ribbons and DISPLAY film products,” she said. “In addition, the site is a regional finishing operation for color negative paper and thermal products.”
Facing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Eastman Kodak Company sold its personalized imaging and document imaging businesses to the U.K. Kodak Pension Plan, its largest creditor, in April last year.
KPP formed Kodak Alaris for its personalized imaging and document imaging services in September last year.
