A subsidiary of Taiwanese electronics manufacturer Foxconn is laying off 115 employees in Fort Worth, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notice.
The layoffs start July 21 and will affect employees at S&B Industries Inc. at 13301 Park Vista Blvd. near the Alliance area in North Fort Worth, according to the notice.
S&B Industries Inc. refurbishes mobile electronics. Foxconn is the world’s largest electronics maker – it makes products for companies such as Apple. The layoffs will affect manufacturing operators, line leads, manufacturing engineers and quality engineers.
Jean Chang, HR director for S&B, said the layoffs are a result of losing customers.
“Some key customers are making the decision to downsize business with S&B,” Chang wrote in the WARN letter.
There have been 1,961 layoffs in Tarrant County reported to the state this year, surpassing 2022 numbers.
Employees may be able to transfer to a different location “depending on business need,” according to the letter.
