Bimbo Bakeries USA to Close Nebraska Bakery


HASTINGS, NE
Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Bimbo Bakeries USA will be shuttering its Hastings-based bakery operations, shifting and dispersing to several other bakeries upon the close, set for early September.

The bakery opened in the 1950s, employing just over 100 employees and producing both bread and buns.

Edgar Jaramillio, VP of Operations, Bimbo Bakeries “Making the decision to close a facility is never an easy one,” Edgar Jaramillo, Vice President of Operations for Bimbo Bakeries USA, said in a statement, according to the Hastings Tribune. “After careful analysis and consideration, we determined it is most efficient to redistribute production to the nearby locations to better meet market demand.”

Production from the facility will be shifted to:

  • Bellevue, South Dakota
  • South Sioux City, South Dakota
  • Sioux Falls, South Dakota
  • Topeka, Kansas

The company added that it plans to have human resources meet with affected associates and union representatives. “We truly value and respect our dedicated associates at the Hastings bakery and will assist them throughout the transition,” Jaramillo stated.

Bimbo Bakeries acquired the facility from Sara Lee back in 2011, and stated that there are not immediate plans to close more bakeries at this time.
