TreeHouse Foods, Inc., Oak Brook, Ill., announced plans to close its St. Louis, Mo., office on June 28, as part of the company's previously announced TreeHouse 2020 multi-year restructuring program to reduce cost structure and administrative footprint and to align with the current and future needs of the business.
"We appreciate the contributions that the employees at the St. Louis location have made over time. Our decision to close St. Louis was not taken lightly, and we are committed to providing employee assistance through this challenging transition," says Steve Oakland, president and CEO. "As we streamline our organization into four divisions (from five) and build our commercial excellence capabilities, it is both prudent and strategic that we also consolidate our administrative locations."
The St. Louis office closure will affect approximately 170 employees, and the related work content will be consolidated into the company's existing facilities in Oak Brook.
