Chillicothe Plant Closing
(2008-01-16)
(WOUB) - An Ohio company that supplies paper to
catalog and magazine publishers says it's shutting down operations at some plants, including one in its home state.

NewPage says the closings include a facility in Chillicothe that employs about 160 workers.

About 660 jobs are being eliminated nationwide as NewPage consolidates operations following its purchase last September of Stora Enso North America.

Eight factories were acquired as part of
that deal.

NewPage is based in Miamisburg, near Dayton, and bills itself as
the largest printing paper manufacturer in North America, based on production capacity.
