NORWELL, MA — The ARAMARK Corporation has plans to cut 118 jobs at its Wearguard-Crest apparel plant at the end of December, according to the Patriot Ledger.
The layoffs had been anticipated since the company told employees over the summer that it had put the Norwell facility up for sale and would move much of its manufacturing operations to other plants in the states of Nevada and Virginia, the story stated.
ARAMARK spokeswoman Sarah Jarvis said: "While never an easy decision, ARAMARK is committed to treating those who are leaving with dignity and respect, and doing as much as we can to ease their transition."
The cuts, effective December 31, 2009, affect 58 distribution jobs, 42 manufacturing jobs and a handful of support staff, the story noted.
It remains unclear how many employees will remain after the layoffs, but ARAMARK has said they will maintain a presence on Norwell, the story added.
