Bloomfield Factory to Close

A manufacturing company has announced plans to close its Bloomfield facility.

Lumentum, formerly JDSU, produces commercial and industrial lasers, optical communications and 3D sensing.

The company is transferring its manufacturing and product development operations from the Bloomfield factory to a Lumentum site elsewhere in the country, according to company communications director Greg Kaufman.

"This action is being taken to continue to optimize the cost structure of the product lines currently manufactured in Bloomfield in order to meet our customers’ future cost expectations and remain competitive in the market," Kaufman said in an email to NBC Connecticut on Friday.

It's not clear when the facility will be shuttered or how many employees will be affected by the move.
