Tyco Electronics, which bought Eden Prairie-based ADC Telecommunications last year, will cut about 250 jobs in the Twin Cities by September.
The cuts will come at a manufacturing plant ADC had in Shakopee. Tyco plans to move most of that plant's operations to former ADC plants elsewhere.
"We've identified a number of duplications and overlaps in various functions at the workforces at Shakopee," said Tyco spokesman Michael Ratcliff. "We announced to employees late last week that we would be moving most of the manufacturing from Shakopee to Tyco Electronics sites in Juarez, Mexico and Santa Teresa, New Mexico."
Ratcliff said this is the first major job cut since Tyco bought ADC for nearly $1.3 billion last year.
Employees losing their jobs will not be able to transfer to New Mexico. Currently, Tyco has about 700 employees in Shakopee and 200 in Eden Prairie. The company plans to move the Eden Prairie employees to Shakopee later this year.
