Schiller consolidates operations

Supplier News

| May 8, 2013

Schiller Grounds Care is consolidating its manufacturing operations. Effective immediately, production at its Norfolk, Neb., facility is being consolidated into two of Schiller’s existing operations, Johnson Creek, Wis and Southampton, Pa. The Norfolk facility has been leased since the Classen brand was acquired in 2004. Approximately 27 full-time employees are affected with several individuals being offered positions to relocate.

The decision to consolidate is in no way a reflection on the work of the Classen employees, nor the talent and pride with which they do it, according to a statement from the company. This consolidation will help ensure that the performance of Classen products remains best in class, and that Schiller’s costs are structured in a way that will keep it strong, efficient and competitive both in today’s economic environment and into the future, the company said.
