Acer to fire 10 percent of Chinese employees
Tuesday, 29th March 2011
Acer, one of the world�s biggest PC makers, will lay off 10 percent of staff in China as its workforce there overlaps with that of local partner Founder Technology, a company spokesman said on Friday.
The cuts fall mainly in logistics staff, such as procurement employees, and come less than a year after Taiwan-based Acer signed a memorandum of understanding with China's Founder Technology. Acer inked the deal to help it expand its share of the massive Chinese market.
Acer would not say exactly how many people will be cut in the layoffs, which began on Thursday. Founder will also lay off some employees. Taiwanese media estimated Acer's China staff at about 1,000 people.
