Volex all but gone

Volex Canada Inc., a manufacturer of technology cables and systems, is cutting its Ottawa workforce by 80%. A company spokesperson says that while the division of U.K.-based Volex Group intends to maintain a presence in the capital, it will also reduce its local staff of 40 to eight sales and engineering staff. As recently as 2005, the firm employed 125 workers at its 25,000-square foot Kanata light manufacturing facility. About four years earlier, Volex terminated the jobs of 115 workers as sales to key clients Nortel and JDS Uniphase weakened.
