A total of about 10,000 Nypro employees around the world will become Jabil employees.

The consumer electronics portion of Nypro will be integrated into Jabil’s Materials Technology Services.

Courtney Ryan, Jabil’s senior vice president, will run the business from the current Nypro headquarters in Clinton, Mass.

In other news, Greg Adams has left Nypro, where he served as chief financial officer and a member of the board of directors, to become CEO of Tenere Inc., a Dresser, Wis.-based injection molder that designs and manufactures plastic and metal components.
