TreeHouse Foods, Inc., Oak Brook, Ill., announced plans to close its office in Omaha, Neb., by Jan. 31, 2019. The decision to close the Omaha office is part of the company's previously announced TreeHouse 2020 multi-year restructuring program to reduce its cost structure through simplification and to align the operations with the current and future needs of the business.
"The decision to close the Omaha office was a difficult one, and we are committed to assisting employees through this difficult transition," says Steve Oakland, president and CEO. "As we streamline our enterprise resource planning systems and near the completion of SAP order-to-cash conversions, it makes a great deal of strategic and financial sense to leverage our shared services capabilities across the company."
The Omaha office closure will affect approximately 200 employees. The related work content will be consolidated into the company's existing facilities in Green Bay, Wis., and Oak Brook.
