ATLANTA — Cintas Corp. plans to gradually close its distribution center and centralized stockroom in Atlanta over the course of the next 12 months, the company reports.
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,” says 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 says it has 10 other facilities in the Atlanta market and affected employee-partners are encouraged to apply for open positions at those facilities.
According to Cintas, if the company is unable to offer continuing employment, severance pay, optional continued healthcare coverage and job placement help and resources will be provided.
