Apple Computer Inc. confirmed on Wednesday that the company would be closing its Sacramento manufacturing facility and moving operations to another part of California.
“As part of an ongoing effort to make our operations more efficient, Apple is closing its Sacramento manufacturing operation and moving most of its California-based manufacturing activities to a supplier in Southern California,” Apple said in a statement given to MacCentral.
Apple declined to comment on what products were manufactured at the plant or how many workers the shutdown would affect. While the plant will close, other parts of Apple will remain in Sacramento.
“Employees from various other functions of the company will continue to work in Apple’s Sacramento facility and while this action will result in a reduction in operations staff, Apple’s overall headcount worldwide continues to grow,” said Apple.
