GRANBY, Quebec--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) announced today plans to shut down the processing of uniforms, floor mats and other products at its Granby, Quebec facility by January 2, 2020. The company will continue to provide service to its customers from the facility and has plans to grow the number of service employees.
“Our strategy is to focus on the optimal infrastructure to facilitate excellent customer service and future growth across the province of Quebec,” said James Dawe, North Atlantic Group Vice President for Cintas. “Cintas made the decision to have the processing for its Granby customers absorbed by some of its other facilities in order to process products of the highest quality in modern, up-to-date facilities using the latest technology.”
The processing stoppage will impact about 100 employee-partners. Cintas has 3 other facilities in the province and affected employee-partners are encouraged to apply for open positions at those facilities. If the company is unable to offer continuing employment, job placement and other resources will be provided. Cintas will also provide stay bonuses for employee-partners who work through the shut-down. It is a top priority for the company to assist these employee-partners and their families throughout this transition.
