Employees at the Colorado Springs division of ITT Corporation will not be affected by a recent realignment within the company.
ITT announced that it will consolidate its seven “value” centers into three in order to better align its products with the services its government customers need, said B.J. Talley, director of communications for ITT Systems, the Colorado Springs center for the national company.
The center in the Springs employs 900 people, and no one is being laid off or asked to move, he said. That’s not true for some of the company’s centers in other parts of the nation.
“We restructured because it’s more efficient, but the main reason is to offer a suite of services across the information/database to our government customers,” he said. “We’ve heard a lot of talk about how much information – they’re awash in data – but they need solutions. We’re hoping this realignment will provide the opportunity to give them both the product and the service.”
The company’s defense segment will be renamed ITT defense and Information Solutions, he said. The Colorado Springs office will simply report to different people under the new structure.
