New York firm IQor to close its Tampa location, cutting 107 jobs


Outsourcing firm to cut 107 Tampa workers

IQor U.S., a New York-based outsourcing firm that acquired Jabil Circuit's aftermarket services business earlier this year, is closing its Tampa location, eliminating 107 jobs, mainly in manufacturing.

The first round of layoffs will occur as soon as Dec. 5, with subsequent layoffs next year on Jan. 7, Feb. 1 and March 31, according to material the company provided to the state as part of a layoff notice filed Thursday.

St. Petersburg-based Jabil sold its aftermarket services unit to IQor in April in a $725 million deal. The aftermarket unit provides electronics warranty repair work. As part of a multiyear partnership, Jabil retained a financial stake in the combined company, called IQor Aftermarket Services.
