Georgia-Pacific closing two facilities in Arkansas; 655 workers losing jobs

LITTLE ROCK (From news reports) -- Georgia-Pacific announced Tuesday (June 4) it is permanently shutting down the equipment and processes supporting the bleached board operations at its Crossett facility in south Arkansas as of October 2019. About 555 jobs will be impacted by the closure. Also, the timber and paper company will close a particleboard facility in Hope, laying off 100 workers.

The Crossett decision was based on an assessment of the mill's ability to compete effectively in the bleached board market, the company said.

Machines, an extrusion plant, woodyard, pulp mill and a significant portion of an energy complex at the mill will be closed.

In July, the company will also shut down one of the mill's older tissue machines that doesn't support the long-term competitiveness of the tissue business.
