Pitney Bowes cuts Spokane call center by 36 jobs, 24 jobs moving elsewhere

Spokane's Pitney Bowes call center is losing 36 jobs, the company announced on Thursday.

Of those jobs, 24 are relocting to another call center Pitney Bowes operates in Appleton, Wis.

The Spokane site, at 1313 N. Atlantic, has employed more than 400 workers in the past. It's one of three major call centers that serve Pitney Bowes customers who buy mailing and document management equipment.

Pitney Bowes spokesman Matt Broder said the Spokane operation continues as one of the company's main service locations. In addition to Spokane and Appleton, Pitney Bowes has a service center in Norfolk, Va.

The relocation is being done to help PB align workers who do the same work to be based in the same building, "which is  more efficient for us as a company," he said.
