- Reduction in North American headcount by 13% to become more effective and product focused -
MONTREAL, Québec, July 13, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xebec Adsorption Inc. (TSX: XBC) ("Xebec" or the "Company"), a global provider of sustainable gas technologies, announced today a development with its previously announced Centers of Excellence ("COE") Framework to ensure the Company’s global footprint becomes more effective and product focused. Effective today, Xebec has made the difficult decision to reduce 51 employees from its full-time workforce, representing approximately 13% of its North American employee base.
"This is a very challenging day for us as we part with some of our dedicated and talented colleagues. While we have made successful strides in product and process optimization, alongside significant sales efforts, today’s reduction of employees is an unfortunate byproduct of driving further efficiencies. We sincerely wish all these members of the Xebec family the best of luck with their future endeavors and thank them for their years of service," stated Mike Munro, Chief Operating Officer at Xebec Adsorption Inc.
Over the last several months through its COE Framework, Xebec has taken steps to enact product and process standardization and unlock cost synergies across acquisitions completed over the last two years. For example, the Company’s Blainville, QC manufacturing facility is now focused on manufacturing proprietary Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) units and its Denver, CO manufacturing facility is focused on containerized and compression-based systems. This level of specialization brings cost optimizations and improved execution across facilities.
