Steelcase warns 300 more Grand Rapids factory workers may lose jobs by end of February

Wednesday 14 January 2009

GRAND RAPIDS -- Steelcase Inc. has warned 300 more factory workers in the Grand Rapids area they may lose their jobs by Feb. 27.

The office furniture manufacturer already issued warnings to another 300 local workers, and, last week, extended expiration dates for those warnings by a month to Feb. 13.

In all, 600 blue-collar workers at area plants have received the notices, company spokeswoman Jeanine Holquist said Monday.

Previously, the company also announced it was cutting 300 salaried jobs by the end of February, when the company\'s fiscal year ends.

The company did not specify where those jobs are, but Holquist said most white-collar jobs are located at the Grand Rapids headquarters.

The job cuts and warnings are necessary because of the sluggish office furniture market, she said.

More on this story is available from The Grand Rapids Press.

\"The company wants to make sure in this highly volatile market that we remain highly flexible,\" Holquist said.
