SUSSEX, WI—Quad/Graphics will build on a 93,800-square-foot storage area onto its Oklahoma City facility, a move that carries a $7 million price tag, The Oklahoman reported. It reportedly will be used to store up to 30 million pounds of paper. Construction is expected to be completed this fall.
A press from a closed plant will be relocated there and the printer will hire 80 full-time and 50 part-time workers to meet the added demand.
