Wisconsin-based Quad/Graphics is closing three more commercial printing plants, in Oklahoma City, Nashville, and Fernley, Nevada, Milwaukee Business Journal reported Dec. 18. The closings will affect 650 employees.
Quad pointed to volume declines as behind the closings, the journal said.
Also in 2020, Quad closed plants in Taunton, Massachusetts; Charlotte, North Carolina; Portland, Oregon; and Riverside, California. Those closures resulted in 1,100 job cuts.
Meanwhile, the company is investing $45 million in its upstate New York plant. Quad is installing two manroland eight-unit auto transfer presses, the Albany Business Review reported. The upgrades are happening with the aid of $9 million in incentives from local and state sources, the Milwaukee Business Journal said.
