FITCHBURG, MASS. — To consolidate, Shape Inc. moved its corporate offices to Fitchburg from Portsmouth, N.H.
It completed the 75-mile relocation in November. Ten people were involved. Shape moved to the Portsmouth location in August 1996; previously it was based in Biddeford, Maine.
Now, corporate functions are located at a Fitchburg manufacturing site, one of Shape's five facilities.
``In the plan to further improve [company] effectiveness, it was clear we need to be close to our operations centers,'' Peter Ciriello, president and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
Shape employs 800 and uses plastic molding, assembly, packaging and distribution processes to make optical and tape products for the electronic media, data storage and computer industries.
