NEW ALBANY, Ohio, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CVGI), a leading supplier of fully integrated system solutions for the global commercial vehicle market, today announced the Company's plans to permanently close its production and warehouse facility located in Tigard, Oregon.
The Tigard plant currently has approximately 80 employees who will be offered transition support and/or opportunities at other CVG plants. The Company will also petition for assistance for affected employees under the Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA).
The work currently performed at the Tigard facility includes the production of interior trim components such as instrument panels and storage cabinets used in large commercial vehicles. The majority of this work will be distributed to other CVG plants in North America. The closure is expected to be completed by the end of December 2014.
The Company anticipates taking restructuring charges of approximately $3.2 to $3.5 million, in the aggregate, between March and December of 2014. The annualized savings from this action are expected to be in the range of $1.5 to $2.5 million.
"Strategic decisions that impact personnel are always difficult and are not taken lightly, but this is a necessary step in response to changing customer needs and industry dynamics. Many of our customers, serviced by our Tigard facility, have transitioned their businesses to other geographic regions. In order to remain competitive, CVG must continually re-evaluate market requirements and realign our capacity and manufacturing footprint," said Patrick Miller, President Global Truck & Bus for CVG.
"We appreciate the service of our Tigard employees, and we will assist them and their families in dealing with the changes occasioned by the closure of the facility," Miller added.

But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization.
