WASHINGTON, June 22 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Labor today announced a national business partnership with MenloWorldwide, a global company that provides supply chain services. The collaboration creates a bridge between the private sector and the federal workforce investment system.
The workforce investment system is partnering with employers across the country to assist workers in obtaining skills for the jobs that employers need to fill," said Emily Stover DeRocco, assistant secretary of labor for employment and training. "MenloWorldwide's partnership with the public workforce system reflects our commitment to prepare current and future generations of employees for good jobs with career ladders in growing and emerging industries.
MenloWorldwide Logistics will set up shop in Oklahoma with a 20,000-square-foot leased plant in Pryor Creek's Mid-America Industrial Park.
Menlo is the logistics subsidiary of national freight company Con- way. Both operate from San Mateo, Calif., although Con-way's 2010 annual report projects the parent's executive offices will complete a consolidation into its Ann Arbor, Mich., facility by this summer.
