Knoll to move some manufacturing operations from Grand Rapids

Friday 19 March 2010

Office furniture maker Knoll Inc has said it will relocate some manufacturing operations at Grand Rapids, Michigan to other sites to better align its manufacturing footprint with demand.
The move, which includes voluntary and involuntary layoffs, will result in a charge of about $7.5 million to be recorded from the second quarter of 2010, Knoll said in a regulatory filing.
The company will relocate some of its warehouse distribution centres into the Grand Rapids site in order to make use of available space.
Office furniture makers have been hit by weak demand, high office vacancies and corporate downsizing as firms cut costs to weather the downturn.
The restructuring will commence in the second quarter of 2010 and continue through the second quarter of 2011.
