SolarWorld Cuts 63 Jobs in WA


SolarWorld Industries, whose parent company is based in Bonn, Germany, is cutting 63 positions from its Vancouver, WA facility, according to the Washington State Employment Security Department. SolarWorld says the move is not a reduction in total staff, but rather a transfer of operations to its new manufacturing plant in Hillsboro, OR (which Xconomy reported on here).
