Brattleboro, Vermont Neenah Paper facility closure to leave 100 out of work
October 29, 2018
BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (From news reports) -- Dozens of workers will lose their jobs when a Brattleboro Neenah Paper facility closes.
Georgia-based Neenah says it will shutter its Vermont facility, eliminating 100 jobs. Neenah bought the Brattleboro facility from Fibermark in 2015. Vermont Labor Commissioner Lindsay Kurrle says the impacted jobs range from entry-level to engineering to administrative. Workers will be paid through the end of the year but will stop working by the end of November.
"We were notified [Thursday] night that Neenah is also going to be laying off. They're actually closing their Brattleboro facility and there are approximately 100 workers that will be affected," Kurrle said. "You're always going to have that even in a solid economy, so I don't think that this is an indication. There may be indicators of a stressed economy, but I would not say this is a single indicator."
