The Houston energy services company, a subsidiary of General Electric Co. of Boston, reported the layoffs at its Schertz location to the state in a workforce adjustment and retraining notification or WARN notice Friday. A letter sent to the Texas Workforce Commission on June 6 saidthe bulk of the layoffs will start in September and continue through December.
Baker Hughes spokeswoman Melanie Kania said the layoffs are linked to the closing of Baker Hughes’ gas processing facility in Schertz by the end of the year “after a careful review of how best to adjust our operations to best align where future business and opportunity exists.”
Baker Hughes is laying off 266 people in Comal County.
