TC Transcontinental says it will close its Tomah, Wisconsin, packaging plant in early February, moving some of those operations to other plants in its network in the U.S.
“In line with our priority of optimizing the return on our assets, reducing costs, and improving operational efficiency, we have made the decision, after thorough consideration, to close our Tomah, Wisconsin, plant,” said Jeff Lasley, senior vice president of dairy, protein, and pet food (DPP) in Latin America and New Zealand, in a statement. “We regret the impact of this decision on our employees who have been a strong team of contributors since the acquisition of the plant by TC Transcontinental in 2018. We thank our 89 employees and will ensure they receive the respect they deserve, including support in their career transition.”
TC Transcontinental provides flexible packaging in North America and is Canada’s largest printer. It has about 8,000 employees, the majority of which are based in Canada, the United States, and Latin America.
