EveryWare Global to Close Oneida Office
COLUMBUS, Ohio-EveryWare Global plans to close its regional office in Oneida, N.Y., as part of its ongoing integration of the Oneida business. A smaller satellite office in Melville, N.Y., also will be closed.
Certain functional and administrative roles now based at the Oneida regional office will gradually be relocated to the company's headquarters in central Ohio, as will certain roles based in Melville. The changes will take place in several phases beginning in April with full completion scheduled in 2015, the company said.
"This is a difficult but necessary decision as we work to complete the full integration of the Oneida business into EveryWare," said John Sheppard, EveryWare CEO. "This move will enable us to achieve the greater efficiencies and synergy of having all of our key business, functional and administrative positions in a single North American location."
EveryWare is providing affected associates with severance and other support. The Company intends to divest the Oneida office building, located at 163 Kenwood Ave.
Monomoy Capital Partners acquired Oneida in 2011 and combined it and Anchor Hocking under the EveryWare name in March 2012. The company became publicly traded in May 2013.
