IWCO Direct, a direct mail company which employees 150 people at its facility off Steamboat Drive in Warminster plans to layoff 50 of the facilities employees over the next several months.

Vice President of Marketing for IWCO Direct Debora Haskel, said that the company is ending its “pick and pack” direct mail service. The “pick and pack” service uses components that were supplied by customers.

The company is now transitioning to what they call, “fulfillment programs with components generated in-house by IWCO Direct.”

“Those that will be affected will work through the transition period or will be provided pay and benefits continuity,” said Haskel.

The companies Mail-Gard product is also based at the Warminster facility, none of those employees will lose their jobs.

“We do not anticipate any additional layoffs at this time,” said Haskel.

Haskel said the company came to the decision to layoff the 50 employees after a 10-month evaluation of the business.

IWCO Direct acquired the Warminster facility in 2010 when IWCO purchased Transcontinental Direct which previously ran the facility.
