Am I Next? TE Connectivity closing Hemet, California plant.

Berwyn, Pennsylvania-based TE Connectivity, a global designer and manufacturer of connectors and sensors for harsh environments, has announced that it will be downsizing its U.S. manufacturing capacity which will result in the closure of its design/engineering laboratory and manufacturing facility in Hemet, California. 240 employees will be laid off. The company’s operations will be transferred to other facilities located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Tullahoma, Tennessee.

A company spokesperson noted, “As a result of a continuing analysis of our industrial and commercial transportation business, TE Connectivity will relocate manufacturing operations and the engineering lab from our Hemet facility to other North American locations.

Change is coming. There will always be a tomorrow, no matter how much you may try to ignore it. There are no guarantees in life, or promises for a bright future. Just because something bad hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. No one is guaranteed to wake up tomorrow and still have a job by evening. Are you now wondering, Am I Next?
