CROSSETT, Arkansas (From news reports) -- More workers at Georgia Pacific in Crossett are having to look for other jobs.
The company announced its Sparkle paper towel line will be shutting down, affecting about 25 employees.
"Some of our equipment is a little bit older. and the company feels other mills can produce it in a more effective manner," Public Relations Manger, Jennifer King.
The employees were notified of the shutdown Tuesday morning. The news comes just two months after the company announced more than 500 people would be losing their jobs.
In June, the company announced the bleach board machines, extrusion plant, woodyard, pulp mill and a significant portion of the energy complex at the mill will all be closing by the end of the year.
All that's left at the mill now is the tissue paper operations, which will become their main focus going forward.
"The toilet paper business is a huge part of our consumer business product across the GP spectrum," King said.
