Office Depot Completes Catalog Office Consolidation

Delray Beach, FL-based Office Depot completed its 18-month consolidation of its Viking Office Products and Office Depot offices earlier this month. Both brands are now being run by the same sales and marketing organization in Delray Beach, says chairman/CEO Bruce Nelson.

Office Depot had announced the decision to employees in Viking’s Torrance, CA-based marketing, merchandising, and administrative units during the summer of 2002. The company’s creative services unit, however, remains in Torrance, as do Office Depot and Viking fulfillment facilities. Office Depot has owned Viking since June 1998.

Office Depot had offered the Torrance employees bonuses to remain in their jobs until the move, Nelson says. The company also offered to relocate 80-90 people from the Torrance office to Delray Beach. Chief among those who chose to leave the company was Viking vice president of marketing Sean Clough.
