Turning its 51%-owned Canadian affiliate Mitel Corp around has proved to be much longer, harder task than British Telecommunications Plc had imagined or hoped, and the company is still having to make more cuts. Another 10% of the worldwide workforce, now down to 4,000, is to go, and the company is closing its service and repair centre in Florida at the cost of 75 jobs, the work transferring to Ogdensburg, New York and Mitel’s home in the Ottawa suburbs. The small – $1.4m a year communications management services division has also been sold off.
