The owner of Windigo Logistics, which is taking over operations of two Colorado distributions centers from Supervalu, formerly worked at the grocery retailer/distributor
Supervalu’s distribution arm, Advantage Logistics USA West, is ceasing operations at two distribution centers in Colorado. The warehouses, in Aurora and Fountain, will close in mid-February, according to local news reports.
Nearly 750 workers will be affected, but Denver-based Windigo Logistics plans to assume operation of the facilities as well as hire as many of the current workers who want to make the switch.
“Windigo will be taking over the operations of the facility and the work that was done there; it is our understanding that they will offer employment to many of our associates. The work will still continue out of these facilities,” said Jeff Swanson, a spokesman for Eden Prairie, Minn.-based Supervalu, in a Denver Poststory.
