    Kellogg Co. will cut 292 jobs at its Horsham distribution center, according to a WARN notice the company provided to the state of Pennsylvania.

    The layoffs will take place between Aug. 4 and Aug. 17 at the facility on 100 Witmer Road, Suite 300.

    The cereal company moved into 22,177 square feet at Witmer Road in 2008, relocating from 13,069 square feet in Fort Washington. It had moved this eastern regional sales office to Fort Washington years ago when consolidating King of Prussia and Bucks County offices.
