Unisys Corp. said yesterday that it will combine some of its Burroughs and Sperry U.S. sales and marketing activities at the company's Blue Bell, Montgomery County, operations.
The activities to be based in Blue Bell would be for the recently merged company's commercial information processing systems.
"The merger has given us a unique opportunity to accelerate our commitment to line-of-business marketing," said Joseph Kroger, Unisys vice chairman with responsibility for worldwide commercial marketing.
Peter Hynes, Unisys spokesman, said the firm can't say how the move would affect employment at Blue Bell, where 3,500 people now work. Last week, Unisays laid off 56 workers at Blue Bell as part of a nationwide trimming of its work force.
