CommScope Shuts Manufacturing in Omaha

CommScope will discontinue operations at its Connectivity Solutions Manufacturing subsidiary in Omaha, Nebraska and relocate manufacturing to one or more existing CommScope facilities in North America. The company expects annualized pretax savings of approximately $18 million to $22 million upon completion of relocation and closure of the facility in late 2011.

The company currently employs approximately 400 people in its CSMI subsidiary in Omaha, all of whom will be affected by the manufacturing relocation. Another 70 employees in non-manufacturing corporate functions, who currently are housed in the CSMI facility, are expected to relocate to a new Omaha location prior to the plant's closing.
