Over 200 jobs are to go from multinational Hewlett-Packard's Irish operations over the next two years, the company has stated. Hewlett-Packard issued a statement saying that 204 positions in Ireland would be 'affected' by the computer and printer manufacturer's plans to cut jobs across the board over its next two fiscal years. Its current financial year ends on 31 October 2005. Thus the jobs will be lost between October 2005 and October 2007. The HP group employs 4,000 people in operations in Dublin, Galway, Kildare and Belfast. The job losses will be part of a major overhaul by HP of its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) operations that will lead to 5,900 jobs losses throughout the division.
