Furniture Maker Herman Miller Cuts 150 Jobs

Michigan-based company says the cuts and other moves it will take over the next six to nine months will save $25 million to $30 million a year.

ZEELAND, Mich. (AP) — Michigan office furniture maker Herman Miller Inc. has cut about 150 full-time jobs.
 
The Zeeland-based company says most of the cuts were made Tuesday and all involved white-collar jobs. Other positions were eliminated during the recent quarter.
 
Herman Miller says the job cuts, along with other moves that it will take over the next six to nine months, will save the company $25 million to $30 million a year.
 
The company announced in September that it would make changes to improve its operating and financial performance.
 
Spokesman Mark Schurman says the cuts have left Herman Miller with a global work force of about 6,950 employees.
