Follett to consolidate some facilities

Follett Corp. has announced that it will consolidate several of its facilities in Chicago's western suburbs at a single property in Westchester .

Follett recently signed an 11-year lease to occupy Three Westbrook Corporate Center, a 160,000-square-foot tower.

Early next year, approximately 750 employees from the company's corporate office and higher education businesses at suburban operations in Oak Brook, Westmont and River Grove will relocate to Three Westbrook Corporate Center.

Follett is a leading provider of physical and digital learning materials, retail services,

school content and management systems to more than 70,000 early childhood, primary and secondary schools, and on more than 1,000 college campuses.

Follett's McHenry facility, which serves the preK-12 segment of education is not directly affected by this relocation, the company said.

"This new facility will allow us to bring together and leverage Follett's significant Chicago-based capabilities in retailing and technology to transform the way education is delivered," said Mary Lee Schneider, president and CEO of Follett Corp. in a press release.
