Novitex Enterprise Solutions, a Stamford,Conn.-based document-management company, said it plans to close its offices in Plainfield, putting 155 employees out of work.    

The company said in a letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development dated Monday that it expects to begin closing operations at 2799 Reeves Road in late August with permanent closure occurring by early September.

Novitex, which was known as Pitney Bowes Management Services until last October, said 71 of the employees are entry-level customer service associates. Another 42 are associate customer service reresentatives.         

Pitney Bowes announced another closure in Plainfield last May when it told state officials that 137 employees would lose their jobs at a warehouse at 2800 Airwest Blvd.

  • Novitex loses US Mint Contract
    The reason Novitex is closing, they lost the US Mint contract for the warehouse and call center operations.
  • From What I Understand...
    These closings come about as tax incentives the state provided to the companies end. We will have lots of empty space and unemployed in Plainfield. Not sure what city officials were thinking ($$$$$) when they decided to let all these warehouses come in to our peaceful, pretty town. UGH

  2. Hello i am Clarisa Steve from Florida USA,when i was in need of a loan of $230,000 to transit a business my friend introduced Mark Oscar loan firm to me because she got a loan from them sometime ago, so I was so scared because of the scams in the internet but my friend encouraged me to give them a try and i gave them a try and i got my loan within 4hrs and their ways was very easy no credit check,no cosigner,no collateral and their interest rate is just 2%, so i will advice anyone out there that need a loan to contact them via their Email:(oscarloanfinance@hotmail.com).

  3. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  4. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  5. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.
