U.S. Paper Converters Inc. Closing Down Appleton, Wisconsin Facility
Print

Appleton, Wisconsin, USA 25 October 2017 -- (From news reports) -- U.S. Paper Converters Inc. announced Monday it's shutting down its Appleton facility, leaving more than 50 people without a job.

It's the latest in a series of devastating closures and layoffs from paper companies in the Fox Valley.

Prior to this, Appleton Coated announced it was in receivership before being sold to a liquidation company. Hundreds of people were laid off, and many are trying to find work through the Bay Area Workforce Development Board.

Some of those laid off employees said they know exactly how the U.S. Paper Converters employees feel.

"You get angry and you get overwhelmed with the emotion of not knowing what tomorrow is going to bring," said Michael McDonald, a laid off worker from Appleton Coated. "We all have families and lives that we have planned."

The Workforce Development Board is also helping employees affected by the U.S. Paper Converters layoffs. The facility will shut down on or around December 31, the company said.
