The President and CEO of Lexington-based Lexmark says the sale of the company to a consortium of Chinese investors will not affect the core mission of the printer and software solutions firm and will have a minimal impact on the 2,300 workers currently employed at the home facility. Paul Rooke spoke to WUKY earlier this morning.
143 Lexmark employees have received word that they will be laid off. The Office for Employment and Training, a partner in the Kentucky Career Center, has received a WARN Act Notice for the layoff at Lexmark International Inc. 143 positions are being affected and the layoffs are expected to be permanent. Lexmark is not, however, closing their Lexington, Ky. facility.
