Club Car layoffs affect Augusta employees

Club Car has completed a round of layoffs that involves some Augusta employees, company spokesman Brian Formato said Monday.

The company would not say how many employees have been let go or the locations affected throughout North America; however, Formato said the reduction affected “a small group of Club Car employees both in Augusta and in the field.”

“We are continually monitoring the economic conditions to ensure appropriate staffing levels, which has resulted in a recent reduction in workforce,” Formato said. “As a business, we will move forward and, as always, concentrate on the needs of our customers while continuing to position Club Car for long-term success as a global, task-oriented vehicle company.”

The Augusta Club Car workforce is about 1,000 people, spokesman Bill Bry­ant estimated. The company’s global headquarters is in Columbia County.
