Lenovo is laying off as many as 1,100 workers but isn’t specifying where the job cuts are being made.

Media reports based on unnamed sources say Lenovo’s Motorola unit in Illinois is taking the brunt of the hit.

However, Lenovo, which maintains one of its two executive headquarters in Morrisville, denied a report that it is moving the Motorola business unit to its North Carolina campus.

“The majority of the positions being eliminated are part of the ongoing strategic integration between Lenovo and its Motorola smartphone business as the company further aligns its organization and streamlines its product portfolio to best compete in the global smartphone market,” Lenovo said in a statement.

The job cuts represent less than 2 percent of Lenovo’s global work force, the company added, noting that its global work force numbers 55,000.

“The company is also making adjustments in other areas of the business as part of a continued effort to manage costs, drive efficiency and support ongoing improvement in overall financial performance,” Lenovo added in the statement. “While these actions are never easy, they are a necessary part of our continued efforts to ensure long-term, profitable growth across all of our businesses.”

In August 2015, Lenovo cut more than 3,200 jobs with many of those taking place within the Motorola group.

News website Droid Life was the first media to report the job cuts Monday, citing sources within the Motorola group.

Lenovo insisted it would maintain the Moto operation in Chicago.

​”Lenovo is absolutely committed to Chicago and we plan to maintain our Motorola Mobility headquarters there,” the statement said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “Chicago has a well-deserved reputation for technical excellence and as the hub of our global (research and development) for our smartphone business we expect to take advantage of local talent to continue developing Moto products there.”

Lenovo paid nearly $3 billion to Google for the Motorola Mobility business unit in 2014, and over time Lenovo has sought to incorporate the smartphone group with its own phone business.

However, Lenovo’s smartphone sales have plunged and as a result the company has steadily reduced the Motorola work force from some 3,500 in 2014 to some 1,600 before the latest cuts were announced, according to the Tribune.

Several senior Motorola executives also left the firm post-merger.
