Xerox Corp. is planning to elim­inate more than 120 positions from its Webster workforce this fall, the company indicated in a Worker Ad­justment and Retraining Notifica­tion Act notice filed with the state Labor Department.

According to Xerox, the cuts — 123 in all — will come by mid-No­vember as it closes its facilities maintenance operations in Webster and outsources the work to Chi­cago- based commercial real estate services company JLL. The affect­ed jobs are related to providing maintenance and cleaning for Xe­rox’s Webster R&D and manufac­turing campus.

In a statement, the company said closing the facilities maintenance operations “is a business decision based on our global strategy of exit­ing non-core activities.”

JLL did not respond to a mes­sage seeking comment. But Xerox spokesman Robert Wagner said Tuesday that the laid-off employ­ees will be able to apply for posi­tions with JLL “and it is expected that a good number of the employ­ees will be offered job opportuni­ties.”

Xerox employs roughly 6,300 lo­cally, with its Webster campus be­ing its single largest manufactur­ing site. It’s the area’s fourth larg­est employer and its largest manu­facturer.

Restructuring has long been a way of way of life at the Connecti­cut- based printing and business process outsourcing company. In the first half of 2014, it spent $69 million worldwide on severance packages as it cut roughly 2,200 po­sitions worldwide. As of the end of June, it employed 142,200 world­wide.

Xerox shares closed Tuesday at $13.45, down 4 cents or 0.3 percent.
