Apple shuts down manufacturing in Elk Grove

Apple Computer on Tuesday shut down its manufacturing operations in Elk Grove, idling a reported 235 workers as it attempts to cut costs in the cut-throat computer-making business.

The company said it will continue to run other operations at its facility on Laguna Boulevard, though it declined to say what those operations entailed, or how many people remain employed there. Officials at the Cupertino-based company said the manufacturing will move to a third-party supplier in Southern California, but declined to provide further details.

Elk Grove Followup

Prior to the manufacturing shutdown at its Elk Grove facility, Apple urged certain employees to consider a relocation to Southern California.

"About two weeks before the announcement, Apple asked some higher-ups at the plant if they would move to Southern California," one source said. "At the time, it was stated that there were preparations being made to move production to the area." Unfortunately, job relocations were not offered to the dozens of line workers who regularly staff the plant.

Meanwhile, in a memo to employees on Tuesday, the company said that despite the layoffs at the manufacturing plant, the company continues to hire. "Employees from various other functions of the company will continue to work in Apple's Sacramento facility. And while this action will result in a reduction in operations staff, Apple's overall headcount worldwide continues to grow."
