The company cut 67 jobs at another call center in the state back in August.

Xerox says it is looking to place more than half of the workers at other locations, providing service to different clients.

Late last year, the company announced plans to reduce its worldwide workforce by 2,500 employees as part of a restructuring.

Over the summer, Xerox released a software patch to correct a scanning anomaly that altered numbers in scanned documents when users made manual adjustments to the file compression settings on some of its scanners.

Shares of Xerox sank about 1% in Thursday afternoon trading.
