Quad/Graphics, a printing company based in Sussex, Wisc., is closing its Jonesboro plant in the fourth quarter of this year.

“We continue to make the bold and necessary moves to strengthen our platform and overall competitive position, and create value for our clients and shareholders,” said Joel Quadracci, Chairman, President & CEO of Quad/Graphics.

The company says it will proactively assist its nearly 600 Jonesboro employees in finding new jobs, including those available at other Quad/Graphics locations.

“We value the talents and contributions of employees impacted by today’s announcement, and we will help them with their career transitions,” Quadracci said. “We need skilled, experienced employees for a variety of positions throughout our company, and we will share those opportunities with Jonesboro employees willing to relocate.”

Quad/Graphics has locations in 19 other states and in Vancouver, British Columbia. The company said it would consolidate its Jonesboro work at other U.S. facilities.
