GP to close facility in Milan, MI

Georgia-Pacific has confirmed to its employees at its Milan, MI corrugated plant that the facility will permanently close by July 6.

During the next 60 days, operations will continue at the plant before a safe and orderly shutdown begins.

“We appreciate all the work our employees have done through the years to make this plant safe and productive,” the company said in a statement. “The decision to close the plant is not a reflection of their work but rather based on our ability to be competitive at this location in the long-term.”

The closure will impact approximately 119 jobs at the facility. “Our focus over the next two months is to continue to safely operate the plant while supporting our employees during the transition,” stated the company.
