Florham Park NJ, in what looks like the first of many, baby food giant Gerber food said Monday that it will be closing its headquarters in Florham Park and moving to Arlington, Virginia, beginning the transition in January 2019.

Gerber will move operations to the same building as its sister company Nestle USA, which also recently relocated to the Washington D.C. area, the company said in a statement.

This leaves close to 180 New Jerseyans will be out of a job mostly in corporate positions such as marketing, finance and HR. The company will offer a chance to relocate, as well as severance and outpatient support for those that can’t make the move.

A congratulations to Governor Murphy , who’s policies seem destine to produce the final mass exodus of companies and labor from the state of New Jersey.
