Oneida to Consider Closure of Foodservice Distribution Center Located in Buffalo, NY
ONEIDA, N.Y., March 8, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Oneida Ltd. (OTCBB:ONEI) today announced that it is considering closing its foodservice distribution center located in Buffalo, New York. This proposal comes as part of a multi-year project the Company began in 2004 to reevaluate and restructure its supply chain with the goals of improving efficiency and service levels and reducing costs. If, after further consideration and any required negotiations, the distribution center is closed, the Company would distribute its foodservice products from its existing Sherrill, New York, Miami, Florida and Chino, California distribution facilities. Should the decision be made to proceed with the closure, the facility would likely cease operation near the end of the second quarter of the Company's fiscal year ended January 2006.
