Vertis set to close Dallas plant on April Fool’s Day
According to the Dallas Business Journal, Vertis Communications will close its Dallas facility, laying off 27 workers, on Monday 1 April 2013. The company disclosed the plan in a letter to the Texas Workforce Commission. The Dallas facility at 8000 Ambassador Road was one of four facilities left out of the recent purchase of Vertis by Quad/Graphics Inc., along with Vertis facilities in New Jersey, Ohio and Ontario, Canada.
I have been unable to uncover any further on-line news stories about the Dallas closure nor suggestions that it is causing anything near the furor of the Fort Erie, Ontario and Medina, Ohio closures. Please drop me a line if you have more information.
