Georgia-Pacific (GP) has said it will close its Green Bay Day Street facility over the next 18 months, with the loss of 190 jobs.
The company said the main reason for the closure is the “combination of changing customer demand, bath tissue upgrades and investments at other GP facilities, and less competitive assets at the Day Street mill”.
Tissue manufacturing at the site will end in mid-May, with some other parts of the mill shutting down in September.
The Day Street mill will continue to make napkins until the Autumn of 2023.
Eligible and interested employees will be able to apply for open roles at GP facilities in Green Bay, including 100-plus roles for the recently announced investment the company is making at its Broadway mill.
This decision does not affect GP’s other operations in Green Bay.
