Sinclair Printing will eliminate 114 positions as it closes its Palmdale facility to consolidate its operations in California.
Sinclair, owned by CJK Group Inc. in Brainerd, Minn., notified the state’s employment development division early this month that the first layoffs would begin July 1.
Sinclair also operates a printing facility near East Los Angeles.
CJK Group bought the building at 600 Technology Drive in the Antelope Valley city in 2015 when it relocated its printing operation from Santa Clarita. Sinclair Printing provides offset printing and binding services for book and catalogue publishers as well as on-demand digital printing services for a variety of clients.
Positions to be eliminated mainly fall in the bindery and press departments, including about 27 bindery helpers, 17 web press feeders or operators, seven cutter/folder operators, maintenance technicians and truck drivers.
