As many as 550 workers will lose their jobs as refinery and convenience store operator Tosco Corp. completes the purchase of Costa Mesa-based 76 Products Co. this month and begins shifting its headquarters to Phoenix, a 76 Products executive said Monday. Some of the departures will be voluntary, 76 Products President Lawrence Higby said. Tosco offered work to about 100 employees--including Higby--who turned down the positions because they didn't want to relocate.
