PRIME CUT 700 SURPLUS JOBS

By CBR Staff Writer

Prime Computer Inc, Natick has concluded the first phase of digestion of ComputerVision Corp, and finds that some 700 people, mainly in manufacturing and operations, are surplus to requirements. The number amounts to about 5% of the minimaker’s 13,500 workforce. The jobs will go over the rest of this year and it hopes to be able to achieve many of the cuts by attrition and by redeployment of people into expanding parts of the business. No cuts will be made in the direct sales force, and its sizable investment in research and development will be maintained. Those it cannot redeploy will get redundancy payments and outplacement services will also be provided by the firm.
