Schwan's To Close ND Distribution Center

Posted: Updated:

Minnesota-based Schwan Food Company is closing distribution centers in Oakes, ND, and Faulkton, SD, and building a new facility in Aberdeen.

Company spokesman Chuck Blomberg says the move is aimed at increasing efficiency.

The Aberdeen facility is to be completed in the fall at a cost of more than $1 million.

The 15 employees in Faulkton and the 12 in Oakes are being offered jobs in Aberdeen and at other sites within the company.

Oakes Mayor Monte Zimmer says the community of about 2,000 people will feel the impact of the job losses.
