Roanoke warehouse to lay off 130

DSC Logistics has notified the Texas Workforce Commission that it plans to lay off about 130 people permanently from the workforce at its Roanoke warehouse at 300 Gateway Parkway. Layoffs will begin in early March.

In an emailed statement to the Star-Telegram on Tuesday the Des Plaines, Ill.-based warehouse and staging company said that the primary customer for the Roanoke facility, Kimberly Clark Healthcare Division, had reconfigured its distribution network.

The company lists a total of 156 employees at Roanoke. WARN notices of the impending layoffs were issued to employees last week.

The company said in its statement that it "highly values every employee" of the Roanoke facility "and will make every effort to place these employees at other DSC locations in the area. DSC manages and operates logistics centers for all three Kimberly-Clark divisions (Health Care, Consumer and Professional) in the DFW Metroplex, and DSC's strategic partnerships with Kimberly-Clark's Consumer and Professional divisions are not affected by this decision."

On its website the DSC lists among its customers major retailers such as Kohl's, food manufacturers such as Kellogg and even manufacturers such as Whirlpool.

Mass lay offs are always hard and usually stir up issues among labor unions and departments. It's a tough situation but businesses have to survive or everybody loses.
