LOUISVILLE, CO – Plexus Corp. is closing its Plexus Boulder Design Center here, eliminating 104 jobs, according to reports. The move comes two years after the firm moved into the facility.

Plexus filed a closure with the Colorado Department of Labor on Jan. 22. The closure is scheduled for Mar. 22.

Layoffs will include engineers, project managers and management/administrative personnel.

Plexus plans to consolidate the Boulder operation with a facility in Boise, ID and cites certain engineering programs that will cease.

“We are proactively responding to the engineering program pauses by strategically repositioning our Boulder Design Center to co-locate with our existing manufacturing facility in Boise, Idaho,” Plexus president and CEO Todd Kelsey said. “This opportunity will allow for the creation of an Aerospace and Defense Center of Excellence. This combination of engineering and manufacturing services will provide the synergies and cost advantages of a campus environment, while delivering a compelling service offering for our customers in the aerospace and defense sector.”

Plexus employs some 19,000 worldwide.
