Alcoa, the worlds leading producer of aluminum and alumina, plans to outsource 130 jobs, including about 70 IT positions, to an India-based services provider as part of a move to reduce costs.

The jobs will move to India over the next 12 to 18 months because they can be performed more efficiently outside, Alcoa said. When completed, the outsourcing will reduce Alcoas regional work force by approximately 6 per cent, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
