Published:
WICHITA, Kan. — Airplane maker Bombardier Inc. is cutting 1,800 jobs across facilities worldwide as it restructures operations.
Spokeswoman Isabelle Rondeau with the Montreal-based company said Thursday that Bombardier plans to reorganize the company into four business segments before Jan. 1.
Bombardier says production-related jobs will not be affected. It plans a 15 percent reduction in what the company calls “indirect functions,” such as human resources, finance and communications.
Rondeau said it is too early to say what the impact will be on the company’s Learjet plant in Wichita or any other of its facilities.
The four business segments will report directly to Chief Executive Officer Pierre Beaudoin.
In January, Bombardier announced a workforce reduction of about 1,700 employees and contractors at facilities in the United States and Canada, including 550 in Wichita.
