January 29, 2019
European potato processor Lamb Weston / Meijer (LW/M) is to establish its Corporate Center at a new office location in Breda, while its Operations & Services Center will be located at the company’s current office location in Kruiningen.

Lamb Weston / Meijer also intends to invest in a Technology Center in Bergen op Zoom.

As a growing organization, Lamb Weston / Meijer is focused on recruiting and retaining talent. Concentrating various activities at different locations will enable the company to achieve better alignment with the labour market, reinforcing its international position. In addition, the current office space in Kruiningen and Breda is reaching its limit.

The company also intends to accelerate its innovation capabilities through a planned investment in a Technology Center in Bergen op Zoom, where products and processes can be developed and tested.

Lamb Weston / Meijer has requested the advice of the Works Council and expects to begin realizing its plans during the course of 2019. There will be no personnel consequences, other than a new primary working location for a number of office staff.

The company will work with those involved to look for suitable mobility solutions.

Employees of Lamb Weston / Meijer were informed of the plans today.
