    Ricoh is closing a facility in Glastonbury.

    Ricoh Imaging Company is closing a facility in Glastonbury, Connecticut and moving to Georgia. How many jobs will be affected is not known.

    “We are closing a facility in Glastonbury and consolidating our Customer Administration functions to our Duluth, Georgia facility to realize process efficiencies and maintain competitiveness.  While some functions will be moved to Duluth, others will be moved to another Glastonbury facility located at 655 Winding Brook Drive, and we're working on finalizing those details over the next several months,” the company said in a statement on Thursday.

    Richard Johnson, Glastobury's town manager, said he was disappointed.

    "Whenever a business leaves it's a challenge for us," Johnson said. "We certainly don't want to see anyone lose employment whether it's a Glastonbury resident or elsewhere."
    Employees were notified this week.
    The company said any impacted employees are eligible to apply for any open and available positions.
    The company employs between 250 and 499 people, according to the Connecticut Department of Labor's Web site.
