Layoffs Hit Ventura County Based Semiconductor Maker

Posted on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 7:27am

A Camarillo based chipmaker is closing one of its local facilities, and laying off more than 40 employees company-wide.

Vitesse Semiconductor said in regulatory filings that the moves were in response to decreased demand.  The company has ended a lease on a building on the 4000 block of Calle Carga, in Camarillo, and spread the layoffs throughout different facilities it operates around the country.  The company’s corporate headquarters remains in Camarillo.
