Todd McFarlane Speaks Out About Layoffs At McFarlane Toys
The folks from McFarlane Toys have sent along this statement from Todd McFarlane about the current layoffs that took place yesterday at his company which we reported about earlier today
“Recently, my company was forced to reduce some of our workforce. Most of those that unfortunately were laid off were very good workers and even more, very good people on a personal level, but in an effort to continue to stay competitive, some hard decisions were made. I wish I could say that my company was somehow special or unique, and that the reality of the world had no bearing on our day to day activities. Sadly, I can't say that.
Does this mean that my company is on the verge of going out of business? No. Does it mean that we will be pulling back on our efforts for the sports lines? Absolutely not. It simply means that some corrections were needed within my company. If you have been reading the news you know that I am in the same boat as many hundreds (and perhaps thousands of companies that are also feeling the same business pain).
My company has been through these bumps before. Remember it's now been about 15 years we've been doing this. Though each day hasn't been all fun, we have learned how and when to adjust so that we can continue to bring you products at a high quality and a fair price.”
