ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Jabil will close one of its plants in San Jose and lay off 150 workers, the company said.

About half the Silver Creek facility’s 298 workers will be offered transfers to the company’s Great Oaks plant, which also is in San Jose. The EMS company furloughed workers at the plant late last year.

The moves will be completed by the end of June, the company said.

A company spokesperson called the closing “isolated” and tied to lower demand for semiconductor capital equipment. No further moves are expected, the spokeswoman told the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
