Clinton Plant Closing Means Loss of Jobs
CLINTON, Iowa (AP) -- Officials say more than 100 jobs will be lost with the closing of the Evergreen Packaging plant in Clinton.
Employees were told the bad news on Tuesday. The closure is expected to occur by Sept. 1.
A news release from Evergreen says the "difficult business decision is necessary in order to improve the position of our company in today's challenging marketplace." Employee Nathan Reafsnider told the newspaper that workers were told that a major cause for the closure was pricing issues that cost the company a few big accounts.
Evergreen is based in Canton, North Carolina, and has plants or other facilities in several states and overseas.
