Quad/Graphics' Closure of its Enfield, Connecticut, Plant, Will Result in 60 Layoffs
SUSSEX, Wis.—September 2, 2015—Quad/Graphics revealed that it will be closing its Enfield, Connecticut, facility by the end of October. The move will result in the loss of 60 jobs.
Employees were informed of the decision last Thursday. The company simultaneously told workers at its Loveland, Colorado, facility that it would also be ceasing operations, leaving 140 people out of work. Production at both plants will conclude at the end of October, with remaining jobs sent out to other Quad plants.
"It is important to note that neither plant is closing because of performance or quality issues," said Quad spokesperson Claire Ho. "Our employees have served our clients well. They’re good, experienced printers and we hope they consider the job openings we have at other Quad/Graphics facilities.
"In fact, we will be holding career fairs at both facilities so employees can fully explore the transfer opportunities available to them. Employees who do not relocate to another Quad plant will receive severance packages and career transition assistance."
Like the Loveland operation, the Enfield plant was obtained by Quad/Graphics in the 2010 acquisition of Worldcolor. The organization will have 65 plants following the closures. Quad/Graphics employs 20,000 people in the United States.
