Updated: The greentechsolar report originally cited a 30% layoff. This was revised and corrected; requisite amends have been made throughout the text. According to a report published by greentechsolar, CIGS maker MiaSolé has let 10% of its workforce go, with most of the layoffs taking place in the engineering and equipment design divisions. The report claims that a company spokesperson verified the layoffs, but did not specify on the extent of the reduction in the workforce. The report from greentechsolar further stated that while, at one time, MiaSolé was producing 15,000 modules per week, various sources have specified that its production numbers have dropped significantly.
Greentechsolar has additionally reported that a source indicated that the company is for sale. News of layoffs and a possible sale come a few months after CEO John Carrington advised that the company was seeking a partner in order to make the company a more viable long-term player in the industry. At the time, Carrington advised, "A lot of companies are interested in this space, and if we could find the right partner that could help make MiaSolé a more long-term enduring company that's good for our shareholders and our employees, then I would support that strategy.”
