Banta is offering its direct marketing printing plant in Danbury, CT, for sale. With 200 employees, its general commercial focus is said to no longer align with Banta’s specialized and highly personalized direct marketing emphasis.
Lastly, three book fulfillment facilities will be closed and consolidated into a new, larger facility. The plants to be consolidated (into a facility in a to-be-determined locale) are in the Wisconsin towns of Appleton, Menasha and Kaukauna. Of the 400 employed at the three plants, 325 will be relocated.
Additionally, up to 150 employees will be cut loose across the organization. All combined actions, including the sale, will impact about 500 positions.
