Vertis Integration Sees Quad Shuttering Two Plants
SUSSEX, WI—Quad/Graphics is in the process of integrating the property and personnel obtained in the Vertis Holdings acquisition, and is closing at least two of its facilities, the Associated Press reported.
Plants in Marengo, IA, and Pomona, CA, are due to close by mid-year. The Marengo facility will be shuttered by March, with Pomona slated to be taken out of service by June. In all, about 200 employees will be let go.
Quad/Graphics spokesperson Claire Ho told the AP that further workforce adjustments will be made elsewhere in the organization, but did not provide details. Quad has facilities in 28 states.
