Nexicore Services is set to lay off 108 employees at its Simi Valley headquarters, according to a notice filed with the state Employee Development Department. Nexicore, a subsidiary of Avnet Inc. of Phoenix, is a computer services company with headquarters at 4201 Guardian St. in Simi Valley. Nexicore also operates facilities in Florida, Illinois and Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1986 as a computer-hardware leasing company, Nexicore was purchased out of bankruptcy by Avnet in April last year. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. The Simi Valley cuts will take place on July 6, but the plant will not close, according to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN notice, filed with the state. California law requires the notices before plant closings or mass layoffs. Avnet issued a statement that said it’s Nexicore division has been affected by the recession and slowing recovering economy, forcing it to align its staff with the current sales of the business. “Unfortunately, this means we had to eliminate some of the Nexicore division’s workforce. These decisions are taken very seriously, and we understand how difficult this can be for the employees involved,” the statement said.
