NCR to cut 360 jobs as company outsources work

NCR Corp., the company once headquartered in Dayton, is cutting some 360 jobs in Georgia, a move that may affect hundreds of other jobs in an economic ripple effect.

Atlanta-based NCR said it will close two manufacturing facilities near Columbus, in west Georgia, later this year, as the company outsources production of some automated teller machines and other self-service kiosks, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), a sister newspaper of the Dayton Daily News, reported.

The moves will eliminate about 360 full-time jobs in Georgia, and could affect about 680 contract workers locally, an NCR spokesman told the AJC. NCR said it also will close a plant in China, the newspaper reported.

The move comes a little more than a month after the company announced that Bill Nuti, NCR chairman and chief executive, informed company directors that he intends to step down for “health reasons upon the naming of a new CEO.”

NCR said it was conducting a “thorough CEO search” which was expected to take about two months.

“Upon stepping down, Nuti will be named chairman emeritus and serve as a consultant to NCR,” the company said.

NCR makes ATMs and customer-facing kiosks as well as software for merchants and banks.

“NCR is executing a multi-year strategic initiative to strengthen our global competitive position and accelerate our transformation to a software and services-led, data-driven business,” the AJC quoted an NCR spokesman, Tim Henschel, as saying.

NCR, he added, remains “committed” to Georgia and Atlanta, where it recently opened a new headquarters campus that is projected to one-day employ about 5,000 workers.

Since leaving Dayton in 2009 — a move that was first announced about two years after Nuti became chairman — NCR has moved its headquarters within the state of Georgia twice, each time fueled by government incentives.
