Deckers Outdoor Corp. will close its Camarillo distribution center this summer, resulting in layoffs for 99 employees.
The Goleta footwear designer and distributor notified the state Employment Development Department early this month that the layoffs started in November and would wrap up by Aug. 31.
“This will be a permanent closing of the entire Camarillo distribution center, and employees will be laid off in stages as the operations of the center wind down,” said the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification sent by Deckers on Feb. 5.
Positions being eliminated include 35 warehouse associates, 32 equipment operators, seven supervisors and four shipping and receiving clerks.
Deckers was founded in 1973 by Doug Otto and Karl Lopker. Its name was changed to Deckers Outdoor Corp. in 1993 when the company went public on the Nasdaq. Its brands include Ugg, Teva, Sanuk and Hoka One One.
