Avon Products, Inc. has announced that as a further step in its ongoing plan to streamline the business to fuel growth, the company will consolidate its U.S. operations into its existing facilities in Suffern, New York.
Avon's consolidation plan includes selling its offices in Rye, New York, by 2019 -- and eliminating 100 positions.
Jan Zijderveld, Avon CEO, says, "With Avon's international focus, simplifying our U.S. operations is a logical next step in providing fuel for growth, and a further example of our commitment to improve Avon's performance and become more fit for purpose."
Zijderveld adds, "While decisions like these that impact our employees are never easy, we will manage the transition in a respectful and sensitive manner. I wish to thank all of our colleagues for their dedication to our growth plans to turnaround Avon."
