Yesterday, Clover Imaging Group (Clover) announced to its Ithaca, Michigan employees that it will be transitioning the remaining Manufacturing, Packaging and Distribution operations based in Ithaca to its other North American facilities by March 13, 2023. Approximately 80 employees are affected by this change. Clover will maintain Engineering, Research & Development, and Quality Control operations in its Union Street, Ithaca facility with an employee base of 20-25.
Like all manufacturers, Clover continues to experience increased costs across its entire supply chain. Consolidating the Ithaca inkjet operations into the same facilities as Clover’s other inkjet and toner cartridge operations enables Clover to maximize operational efficiencies and leverage its manufacturing capabilities to the fullest.
Clover greatly regrets the impact this change has had on its Ithaca employees. Over the next two months, Clover will partner with the Dislocated Workers Program to provide transition services to affected employees. Clover will also partner with area employers to facilitate reemployment opportunities for the Ithaca team.
