The kid food giant said Monday that it will be closing its headquarters in Florham Park and moving to Arlington, Virginia, beginning the transition in January 2019.

Gerber will move operations to the same building as its sister company Nestle USA, which also recently relocated to the Washington D.C. area, the company said in a statement.

This means close to 180 New Jerseyans will be out of a job.

But the company promised to help employees affected, mostly in corporate positions such as marketing, finance and HR, by offering them the chance to relocate, and severance and outpatient support for those that can’t make the move.

“We are committed to supporting all of our employees through this process,” said President and CEO of Gerber Bill Partyka.

“Employees are receiving advance notification to allow them to plan for relocation. The transition will be executed over more than a year-long period which is expected to minimize any disruptions to our colleagues and the Gerber businesses.”

Gerber said the move will not impact its manufacturing locations.

Gerber Products Company became a subsidiary of Nestle in 2007.
