The decision to close our Salt Lake City facility was not taken lightly. Nellson LLC appreciates the outstanding work ethic of the employees, at this and all of our locations, who show dedication and commitment to our business on a daily basis.
(PRWEB) July 18, 2016
Nellson, the leading full-service nutrition bar and powder provider in North America, has formally advised local state officials of the closing of their Salt Lake City, Utah manufacturing facility, in accordance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. Nellson will be consolidating the volume from the Salt Lake City location to their Anaheim facility to better service customer needs.
Nellson LLC originally purchased the Salt Lake City facility in 2003 from Cornerstone Nutrition. After a detailed analysis of both internal and external resources in 2016, it was determined that it was necessary to adjust facility logistics to better service customer demand, resulting in the decision to close the Salt Lake City facility. The approximately 200 employees being impacted by the closure were notified in early March 2016 and are being offered a variety of options that include: relocation options, outplace assistance, retention bonuses, and severance packages.
Raymond Collins, Vice President Human Resources, Nellson said, “The decision to close our Salt Lake City facility was not taken lightly. Nellson LLC appreciates the outstanding work ethic of the employees, at this and all of our locations, who show dedication and commitment to our business on a daily basis. We are working diligently, with local community assistance agencies and local employers, to aid in placing the affected employees upon the cessation of operations. We will continue to invest in our employees to ensure the future growth of our company.”
