BASSETERRE, St. Kitts (Friday 7th March 2020) – In three months, electronics manufacturing firm API Harowe Server (St.Kitts) Limited in Sandy Point will be cutting workers at one of its plants and closing it permanently due to increased customer demands resulting in a decision to move that particular area of business to its facility in southern Asia, as informed this week by management according to a letter addressed to an employee which has been circulating social media.

It is understood that the decision to close the plant has been made based on the increasing demands of customers coupled with the need to increase the scale of operation.
