Acer, the Taiwanese information technology group, has announced that the computer constructor Packard-Bell is to cut 122 jobs in France (at sites in Angers and Puteaux). Of the employees 383 of Packard-Bell in France, most are concentrated at Angers (319), working in services (marketing, logistics) rather than in production activities, which have been gradually relocated to Czech Republic and China. The restructuring plan follows the loss of 200 jobs in 2006, when Packard-Bell decided to externalize its production.
