Financially troubled Kenwood Corp. said Friday it plans to cut 550 jobs from its workforce by Sept. 30 through a voluntary retirement program.

The program is intended to help Kenwood achieve a target, announced in July, of slashing 3,000 jobs from its group workforce, with 600 coming from the parent firm. The program is targeting workers aged 30 and over on regular payrolls.
