Unisys Corp announced earlier this month that it would be closing its Canadian computer storage systems plant in Winnipeg, Manitoba, by the end of July, with the loss of 130 jobs. The Winnipeg plant assembles disk storage systems for use with Unisys mid-range server products. The move marks a shift by Unisys to outsourcing from storage technology partners. In the transition period, it will produce some storage products at its Rancho Bernardo facility in California. Unisys, which is gradually turning into a services organization, wants to limit its manufacturing activities to the high-end servers it still sells to financial services, government, airlines and telecommunications customers. Unisys has a long term OEM agreement for storage with EMC Corp.
