The company did not say how many employees will be affected by the closure of the plant, which Neenah Inc. expanded about five years ago. But, according to the Cities Chamber of Commerce website, the facility employs around 100 people.
The facility is not the first of its kind to close in Fox Valley. Clearwater Paper Corp. announced last month the indefinite shutdown of its Neenah paper mill, which employs nearly 300 people.
