After 5 Year Run, Arvato to Close Digital Services Center in Yakima, WA

Arvato North America has notified the Washington State Employment Security Department that they will be laying off 168 workers in the Yakima area effective September 28, 2018 due to a closure of their facility.

Arvato opened the customer care center in Yakima in January, 2013 after a search for a suitable home for the venture. The announcement at the time of the opening stated that Yakima was selected by Arvato after conducting an extensive evaluation of communities across the country.

Staff from the local rapid response team and WorkSource center will perform outreach to employees of the organization to ease the transition.
