Texas Instruments Inc is being studiously vague about just what those computer operations are that it plans to divest, but the restructuring of its European operations is clear and stark: 800 jobs are expected to go at its 38-year-old site in Bedford, the Financial Times reported; that includes 400 administrative jobs lost at the site, and 200 moved elsewhere in the UK; only about 50 electronics engineers will be offered jobs in France, Germany or home in Dallas, and only 200 people will be left at the site, which employed 3,500 at its peak in the 1970s; reason for the closure, in favour of three centres, in Freising, Germany, Nice, France, and Avezzano, Italy, is that while Bedford did a bit of everything, it majored in nothing.
