CHICAGO — Kraft Heinz announced Wednesday that it will move Oscar Mayer and the company’s U.S. meats business unit from Madison, Wis., to Chicago — a move that will add 250 jobs to the Chicago area.

The company also announced it will close manufacturing facilities in Fullerton and San Leandro, California; Federalsburg, Maryland; St. Marys, Ontario, Canada; Campbell, New York; Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania; and Madison, Wisconsin. The closures will occur in the next 12 to 24 months.

The new Kraft Heinz co-headquarters is at the AON Center, 200 E. Randolph St. The company signed a 12.5 year lease for five floors at the AON Center.

Kraft Heinz formed from the merger of Kraft and Heinz earlier this year. The new company announced in August that 2,500 non-factory jobs would be cut following the merger.
