ZEELAND, Mich. (AP) — A plan to cut 1,000 jobs at Herman Miller Inc. in western Michigan should be completed by the end of the week.
The office-furniture maker, based in Zeeland, had planned to eliminate as many as 650 jobs. But the response to the November announcement was greater than anticipated, so the company bumped the number to 1,000.
Spokeswoman Susan Koole said Monday the last 500 job cuts should be wrapped up this week. The Grand Rapids Press says most are at factories in Zeeland, Holland and Spring Lake.
Cuts have been made through layoffs, buyouts or job elimination. Herman Miller still will employ nearly 4,000 people in western Michigan.
