Tessco Technologies of Hunt Valley -- did layoffs recently happen?
I've been getting messages through sources on the Interwebs that there was a significant layoff at Tessco Technologies in Hunt Valley (possibly 30-40 people), but no one from the company is responding to my emails or tweets. (Were the PR folks laid off too?)
UPDATE: A Tessco happy hour to honor those who were laid off is being planned through this Facebook page.
Layoffs, if they happened, may not come as a surprise to those in the region who follow the company. Tessco had warned last month that its revenues could take a hit since one of its biggest customers is AT&T and that that telecom company was losing exclusivity for the heralded iPhone. Tessco apparently makes accessories for AT&T. (Here's a Baltimore Biz Journal story on the topic from January.)
So, I'm trying to get an accurate, confirmed picture of what happened at Tessco, if anything. Know something you can share? Leave in the comments below or email me at email@example.com.
Oh, by coincidence, it just so happens that a number of Tessco employees were "Glimpsed" as part of our regular feature on fashion attire in the workplace. Check out the photos if you got some time to burn.
