Ricoh to Close Call Center, Lay Off Workers
According to the Orlando Business Journal, Ricoh USA will close its Melbourne call center in central Florida and lay off some 76 workers.
Ricoh is said to have notified the state of Florida of the job cuts and the closing of its call center due to a consolidation of business functions.
The jobs being affected include managers, senior associate, supervisers, and business analysts.
Ricoh USA spokesman John Greco told the Orlando Business Journal. “Relocation to our Tucker, Georgia facility will be offered to some employees and all are eligible to apply for any open positions across the company.”
Other jobs cuts at Ricoh have included the elimination of 150 jobs at a Houston, Texas, call center, and about 1,000 positions in Europe. In North America, about 5,000 jobs were cut in early 2018.
