A clarification about Quiksilver layoffs

By Tiffany Montgomery
March 13, 2008 2:51 PM

Quiksilver executives told me this afternoon I made an erroneous link earlier today between pending layoffs at the Huntington Beach-based company and its recent financial results.


While the company is having layoffs, they are a result of some long-planned strategic decisions, including relocating the distribution center from Huntington Beach to a new 700,000-square-foot facility in Mira Loma and scaling back an in-house screen printing facility. The layoffs are not due to recent financial results or current cost-cutting initiatives.


As a result of the distribution center and screen printing facility changes, Quiksilver will layoff 38 people May 1 and 77 people Aug 1, according to the Economic Development Department's WARN notice list.


I strive to be as accurate as possible and apologize for any confusion.
