Dozens lose jobs after West End downsizing
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – An international company will cut 65 employees from its Richmond-area office, according to a notice the firm filed with the state.
Acision, which provides messaging services to mobile communications companies, notified affected employees Friday, it said in filings made with the Virginia Workforce Network’s Rapid Response program.
The job cuts are “expected to be permanent” and are effective beginning Sept. 9, the company said in a letter to the state.
In an emailed statement, an Acision spokesperson said the downsizing in Richmond staff is due to “realignment.”
