An information technology company is laying off 75 workers at its Grove City facility.

According to a May 11 letter sent from Scott Gaul, vice president of human resources with DecisionOne Corp., to the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services, the jobs are being eliminated because the company lost the "Microsoft repair and logistics business."

DecisionOne, an independent technology support organization with operations in Pennsylvania, California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Arizona and Canada, plans to eliminate 75 positions at its facility at 3423A Southpark Place.

The company, which describes itself as the largest independent technology support organization in North America and has more than 1,600 employees, provides information technology services for other companies.

"The company expects to begin eliminating positions on May 13, 2015, and will continue until the end of the contract with Microsoft which occurs on July 13, 2015," Gaul wrote in the letter, filed in accordance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, the state law that requires most employers with at least 50 employees to provide notice in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs.

Neither Gaul nor DecisionOne responded to calls for comment. According to a May 13 article in The Columbus Dispatch, the company reported that it intends to maintain its presence in Grove City.

The cuts are not expected to have a significant financial impact on the city, said Grove City Administrator Chuck Boso.

"No city likes to lose employees," Boso said. "It's not going to have a great economic impact, but we hate to lose any jobs."

Of the positions being eliminated, six are salaried and 69 are hourly. Among the positions, 22 are material handlers, 19 are receivers and shippers and 16 are technicians. Other employees include engineers, quality control inspectors and inventory control, according to the letter.

This is not the first layoff for DecisionOne in Grove City. In April 2014, the company announced it would eliminate 23 positions as a result of losing a similar contract with Dell Inc., according to its WARN filing.
