INGRAM MICRO PLANS JOB CUTS

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- Computer product distributor and services provider Ingram Micro Inc. today unveiled an outsourcing and restructuring plan that will result in 550 positions either leaving or being cut from its North American operations.

About 130 jobs will be cut from the company's Amherst office, the company said, as support tasks are shifted to an outsourcing firm. Most of the cuts are in the California headquarters.

Ingram Micro said it plans to move transaction-oriented service and support functions "to a leading global business process outsource provider" by the end of this year. The company said it is in final negotiations with two business process outsource providers and expects to make a final decision on which one it will use by the end of April.

Ingram Micro will also restructure and consolidate other job functions within its North American operations.
