Fresh off the announcement that it is buying Longmont-based Dot Hill Systems Corp., Seagate Technology has laid off 70 employees at its own Longmont facility.
The Denver Post reports that the job cuts amount to roughly 5 percent of Seagate’s Colorado workforce, which included 1,400 people in Longmont as of August.
Americans lose more than 164 million hours of work to dental disease, and people with dental benefits are 73% more likely to visit the dentist. Regular dentist visits can detect signs of nutritional deficiencies, general infection, or even more serious systemic diseases.
The total effects of the merger with Dot Hill announced last month remain to be seen. Dot Hill employs more than 250 people in Longmont. When Cupertino, Calif.-based Seagate acquired Maxtor in 2006, about 650 Maxtor employees in Longmont lost their jobs.
