Hewlett Packard Enterprise has laid off 115 workers in Roseville, the latest in a long line of cutbacks at the technology company.

HPE disclosed the layoffs earlier this month in notices to the state Employment Development Department.

The layoffs have been phased in over the past several months, with the first cutbacks taking effect in July. The latest layoffs, affecting 18 workers, are taking place this month.

HPE also has laid off 261 workers at its main offices in Palo Alto.

It’s unclear how many people still work at the company’s Roseville campus, which once employed more than 6,000 workers. A rash of layoffs over the past 15 years has reduced that number to well below 3,000. A company spokeswoman was unavailable for comment Friday.

HPE is the company formed when the old Hewlett Packard Co. split in two last fall. HPE makes servers, software and other products. The other company, HP Inc., makes printers and personal computers.
