StarNews: Corning cutting 100 salaried jobs in NC


By Wayne Faulkner

Corning Inc. is cutting a total of 100 salaried positions at its three North Carolina facilities, the company said Monday.

But the company would say how many of those would come at its Wilmington fiber optics plant on North College Road, which employs approximately 1,000. Corning also would not reveal specific cuts at the two other North Carolina locations, in Concord and Hickory.

“The actions will be taken at the Wilmington plant that fall in line with the announcement we made in late October involving workforce restructuring,” said Joe Dunning, supervisor for media relations for the Corning, N.Y.-based company.

In October, Corning had said it planned to lay off 500 employees worldwide as a result of the depressed economy.
