Eastman Kodak to close Durham center and eliminate 48 jobs

Eastman Kodak is closing its technical response center in Durham and laying off 48 employees.

The center provides support for retail customers that operate the company's picture kiosks.

Kodak filed a notice late last week with the N.C. Department of Commerce under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

The WARN notice said Kodak Eastman is outsourcing the work done at the Durham center. Its closure date is June 11.

Of the 48 employees being let go, four are customer service supervisors and 44 are field engineer positions, according to the WARN notice.

Rochester, N.Y.-based Kodak is outsourcing the work to Datrose, a company that is expected to hire in the Triangle as it takes over the work, said Chris Veronda, a Kodak spokesman.
