INDIANAPOLIS -

Cincinnati-based Cintas Corp. (Nasdaq: CTAS) has announced plans to close its facility on the east side of Indianapolis. In a notice to the state, the company says the closure will result in the layoffs of 69 employees.

Cintas says the decision to close the plant came after an analysis of the Indianapolis market "to determine the optimal structure for continued customer service and future growth." The layoffs are expected to take place over the next to months, ending around July 31.

In a statement released to Inside INdiana Business, Cintas said the employees will be encouraged to apply for positions added to its two local legacy plants. Some of the affected employees will be provided with certain benefits in accordance with Cintas' benefit plans and policies.

As a component of its integration of G&K Services, Cintas has analyzed the Indianapolis, IN market to determine the optimal structure for continued customer service and future growth. Based on this analysis, the company has made the decision to shut down the legacy G&K Plant and integrate its customers into the two local legacy Cintas plants as of July 31, 2017. 

The company will add a significant number of positions at its two local legacy Cintas plants and affected employee-partners are encouraged to apply.  If the company is unable to offer continuing employment, severance pay, optional continued healthcare coverage and job placement help and resources will be provided. Cintas remains committed to continuing to provide great customer service through this transition. The company is also optimistic about the future growth and viability of the Indianapolis market and will retain its two other processing facilities.

    • Benefits Of The 'Somewhere Between 4-40 Hour' Work Week

      Burnout. Retirement. Altered work schedules--so many conversations about this of late. Tim Ferriss of course has his 4-hour work week. If you haven't read the book, (I'd be shocked if you haven't by now), it's worth a quick read. However, as much as it's lovely to consider, I don't really think a 4-hour work week is feasible for most of us--unless we are an ex-POTUS, Brad Pitt or Tim Ferriss. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the 40-hour (or more) work week.
