Digiprint Closes Operation in Neenah, WI, Due to Mounting Tax Warrants
NEENAH, WI—December 31, 2014—Digiprint closed its doors here after the company received increasing tax warrants, the Appleton Post-Crescent reported.
Twenty-one employees were laid off and the company's two buildings in Neenah and Menasha, WI, will go on the market in a few days. President and Majority Owner of Digiprint's parent company, Digicorporation Inc., Jeffry Maroszek said he will also sell all remaining printing equipment in an attempt to break even.
"We were offered a payment plan, but as I looked forward long term, I believed there would be a capital influx needed to update equipment and other infrastructure. That commitment was too much. I made the decision to close last Sunday," Maroszek told reporters.
The Menasha building also houses one location of Aspen Coffee & Tea, a cafe owned by Maroszek. "The cafe is going to be affected, though I can't give a specific time frame," he said.
The downtown Neenah Aspen Coffee was previously shut down, and the branch in downtown Appleton, WI, is currently for sale.
As for Digiprint, Maroszek says he is trying to transition his current clients over to local competitors.
