MPC lays off 27 because of fall sales slowdown

MPC Computers laid off 27 employees Monday to cut costs in the face of a fall sales slowdown.

"It really is a small restructuring to guarantee our expense structure is in line with the business outlook for the fourth quarter and heading into 2006," said Ross Ely, vice president for marketing and public relations at MPC, which is one of Nampa’s largest employers. "What we’re seeing overall right now is that the PC industry is showing some signs of a slowdown."

MPC has seen its sales lag since the beginning of October, Ely said. The end of the year is typically MPC’s slowest season, but sales have been slower than usual this year for the computer manufacturer, Ely said.

The winter season is slow because MPC sells its products mostly to government agencies, which complete their purchases before October, he said.
