ROCHESTER, NY (WXXI) – A company with operations in Seneca Falls is laying off about a quarter of its workforce.
Xylem, a water technology company, recently informed the NYS Labor Department it is laying off 36 of its 138 employees for economic reasons.
A spokeswoman for the company says the cuts are in Xylem’s Financial Shared Services group, and the changes are part of a global initiative by the company that includes redirecting resources to more strategic activities.
Xylem told its employees about the cuts in January, and the layoffs will happen by mid-year. The company says it will continue its long-standing presence in Seneca Falls through other parts of its business.
