Glatfelter announces layoffs at Spring Grove facility
Citing market challenges tied to supply and demand, Glatfelter has announced the elimination of about 120 positions, 30 of which will be from its Spring Grove facility.
The company plans to cut a total of 70 salaried positions across Glatfelter’s Specialty Papers unit, including the 30 in Spring Grove. A paper mill in Chillicothe, Ohio, is also closing, taking with it 50 hourly positions, though the company is hoping some of those positions can be relocated to other facilities.
The layoffs are expected to be effective by the end of September, company representative Eileen Beck said Friday.
