North Carolina firm to lay off 142 in Apopka


A Greensboro, North Carolina-based tech manufacturing firm plans to lay off 142 employees at its Apopka location this year.

Qorvo Inc.(Nasdaq: QRVO) will make the job cuts because it’s eliminating its manufacturing operations by Dec. 1 at 1818 S. Orange Blossom Trail for “business reasons,” according to a June 3 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification letter it sent to the state. The facility will not close completely, as the firm will continue to use it as an engineering design center. It’s unknown how many employees will remain at the facility. Read more here.
