ST. LOUIS — Purina PetCare parent Nestlé is planning cuts at one of its downtown offices, according to a recent filing with the state.
A plan for "reorganizing" the office calls for layoffs, reassignments or relocation of 138 employees currently reporting to 100 North Broadway. The company did not say exactly how many employees are to be laid off. The company says more than 500 employees report to the site.
The company said it had notified all affected workers and that the changes would occur in phases between March 18 this year and May 2024.
Nestlé moved to centralize its American IT operations in St. Louis four years ago, adding 300 jobs here, during a reorganization that sent its national headquarters from California to the Washington, D.C. area.
The company says it employs more than 2,000 people at Purina PetCare's headquarters on Chouteau Avenue, on the southern edge of downtown. The notice did not mention any jobs affected there.
