Plan to downsize the company, HR Management

You are the human resources director at a mid-sized paper supply company in Pennsylvania.  Your company, We Do Paper, employs 300 people in a non-unionized setting.  About half of the workforce consists of sales representatives located around the country responsible for selling product to end users.  Another hundred employees operates the warehouse distribution center about 20 miles from the main corporate office. The average duration of employment is 18 years. A vendor is used to actually transport and deliver product to the customer.  The company's owner died suddenly 3 months ago, and his widow wants to reduce the size of the work force to be more manageable, and to shrink business operations to the east coast region.  She has asked you to undertake actions to reduce the size of the workforce to comply with this new and smaller business model. What is your plan to downsize the company? What additional information will you need? Who will you go to for that information?
