About 200 Appvion employees set to lose their jobs

APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) - About 200 workers at Appvion in Appleton will lose their jobs next year because of a consolidation.

The paper company will shut down three coaters for carbonless paper, along with rewinding and sheeting equipment at its Appleton plant.

Both salaried and hourly workers will be effected.

The operations are being consolidated at a plant in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania. That facility is about 100 miles east of Pittsburgh, and it also produces carbonless paper.

About 300 people will continue to work at the Appleton mill, cutting down the number of workers by around 40 percent.

Van Den Brandt says the Appleton plant will continue to make thermal paper products, as well as some carbonless and specialty coated grades.
