WestRock closing Newark, N.J. facility; 114 could lose jobs
NEWARK, N.J. (From news reports) -- WestRock is closing its Newark plant, potentially putting more than 100 employees out of work.
"As a company, we balance delivering value to our customers with also the need to maximize the efficiency of our operations," the spokesperson said. "We had extra capacity in some of our other facilities, and in order to stay competitive, we are moving production to some of those facilities."
Affected employees are eligible to apply for other positions and encouraged to do so, the spokesperson said. It was not immediately clear where the work performed in Newark would be shifted to.
The company took pains to point out in the notice that: "The decision to close this plant in no way reflects upon the employees. It is a strategic decision based on an analysis of the profitability, capacity and future potential of the plants in this area."
