SOLON, Ohio- Nestlé announced on Friday that the changes it’s making to the company’s manufacturing operations will affect about 100 employees at its Solon facility.

The company is transitioning to a continuous operations model. It will begin making food during its third shift of operations, which traditionally has served only as a sanitation shift.

Nestlé said while certain types of jobs will be eliminated, others will be created.

In a press release, the company said, “Currently, we employ 950 people in our Solon factory. While approximately 200 jobs will be changed or eliminated as we move through this transition, we expect approximately 100 employees eventually to leave the organization. Nestlé will help these team members transition either to positions in other Nestlé facilities where openings are available, or to employment outside of Nestlé.”

Solon employees will evaluate their employment options over the next few weeks.

The company said by Nov. 17, employees will have decided how they would like to proceed and the two production lines will no longer be producing.
