Penguin Random House will close two of its distribution and fulfillment centers — one of them in Pittston — beginning next February.

Stuart Applebaum, spokesman for the book publisher, said the company never discloses the number of employees in any of its divisions or departments, so it’s unknown how many will be affected locally.

The closure the local facility and one in Kirkwood, N.Y., stems from the company’s decision to “unify and consolidate distribution and fulfillment for all its publishers’ physical book titles,” currently shipped from four operations centers, into two facilities in Maryland and Indiana.

Applebaum said there will be “relocation opportunities for some of the positions, and we hope our people will take us up on them.”
