Cintas to Close Distribution Center and Centralized Stockroom Facility in Atlanta
Tuesday, September 5th, 2017
Cintas Corporation announced plans to gradually close its distribution center and centralized stockroom in Atlanta, GA over the course of the next 12 months. Cintas acquired these facilities as part of its merger with G&K Services earlier this year.
“Our strategy is to focus on the optimal distribution structure to facilitate excellent customer service and future growth across our entire organization,” said Terri Cain, Vice President of Distribution for Cintas. “As part of our integration of the distribution network we acquired from G&K, the company has made the decision to shut down these facilities and integrate the products into other distribution centers and stockrooms across our company.”
The facilities closure will impact about 200 employee-partners. Cintas has 10 other facilities in the Atlanta market and affected employee-partners are encouraged to apply for open positions at those facilities. If the company is unable to offer continuing employment, severance pay, optional continued healthcare coverage and job placement help and resources will be provided. It is a top priority for the company to assist these employee-partners and their families throughout this transition.
