Nestlé is cutting 216 jobs at its Solon, OH manufacturing facility, the company announced Monday.

"The Solon factory will continue to be an important part of our manufacturing network and will run lines dedicated to our growing Out-of-Home business," said a Nestlé spokesperson. "The business will actively review opportunities to add capacity to the factory in the future as the business environment evolves."

In a statement, the company said the layoffs will help allow them to "deliver quality products to consumers at competitive prices."

The number of layoffs is higher than the 77 jobs the food giant said in November it was going to cut at the facility.

"The Solon factory will continue to be an important part of our manufacturing network and will run lines dedicated to our growing Out-of-Home business," the statement continued. "The business will actively review opportunities to add capacity to the factory in the future as the business environment evolves.

Nestlé currently employs more than 3,000 employees in Ohio across nine facilities. Another facility is slated to open in Williamsburg, OH, this year, for its pet food products.
