On Thursday, Mobile Mini Inc. reported it would cut about 135 jobs or 90 percent of its workforce at its Maricopa, Ariz., manufacturing facility in order to restructure operations. The Tempe, Ariz.-based company said it was leveraging its combined fleet to satisfy the portable-storage needs customers served by its 80 branches, as a result of the merger with Mobile Storage Group and the successful consolidation of its North American location.
"We have a great deal of concern for our people and how these layoffs will affect them and their families," said Steven Bunger, Mobile Mini's chairman, president and CEO. "However, we must realign our workforce to match the realities of our business, our long-term growth strategy and our financial objectives."
