Harland Clarke Shutters Facilities
SAN ANTONIO, TX—Check printer Harland Clarke is closing a pair of plants: one in Charlotte, NC, and one in Mounds View, MN, leaving 225 total people out of work, the Charlotte and Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journals reported. The Charlotte facility, which employed 100, is slated to close its doors in late March. In Mounds View, where 125 are employed, the plant is set to be shut down by the end of this month.
Harland Clarke encouraged those impacted by the move to seek other job opportunities within the company. Those who did not were offered severance packages.
“It’s really just part of the normal process of running the business, evaluating the efficiencies of each plant and looking at the bigger picture,” Harland spokeswoman Donna Hinkelman told the Charlotte Observer.
