The company on Wednesday evening announced it would phase out production at the mill beginning in mid-May, when the company plans to shut down tissue production. Additional closures will occur in September and napkin production will end in fall 2023.
About 190 employees will lose their jobs, but the company said those employees will be able to apply for other jobs in the company. That includes more than 100 new jobs that will be created with a $500 million expansion of the Broadway Mill in Green Bay. That expansion is for production of premium paper towels.
