MOONACHIE, N.J. (AP) — An elevator manufacturer is moving its New Jersey operation to Tennessee and laying off 50 workers.
Computerized Elevator Control Corp., ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas has filed a letter with the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development regarding the move.
The Record reports (http://bit.ly/1kCjVPQ ) that the German-owned company, which has its U.S. base in Texas, will lay off the New Jersey workers Feb. 28.
A spokeswoman for the company says they'll offer 8 to 10 employees positions elsewhere in the company, and work with other affected employees to help them with outplacement support and severance.
ThyssenKrupp, a subsidiary of a company based in Duisburg and Essen, Germany, calls itself the "largest producer of elevators in the Americas."
Its New Jersey office is in Moonachie (moon-AHK'-ee).
