Printing at Post-Crescent Media in Appleton, Wisconsin, will move to a regional facility in Milwaukee owned by parent company Gannett, the paper reported.
The move is expected to take place in spring and will affect some 140 employees in Appleton.
“The decision was made to create operational efficiencies within Gannett,” said Chris Stegman, President of USA Today Network-Wisconsin. “Consolidating our Appleton printing operations into Milwaukee enables us to fully use the resources of Milwaukee’s Burnham Facility and its state-of-the-art equipment.”
Stegman said the company will help workers apply for other Gannett positions for which they are qualified, including in Milwaukee. Separation packages are available for eligible employees.
Stegman said the move is not likely to meaningfully alter delivery times of products.
