RR Donnelley Norwest Inc. To Close Greeley Plant

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – The telephone directory printing company RR Donnelley Norwest Inc. says it plans to close its Greeley printing plant within 60 days.

The Greeley Tribune reports the closure will affect 177 workers.

The company’s vice president of human relations, R. Scott Bigelow, said in a letter dated Tuesday to Mayor Tom Norton and others that employees would be dismissed starting April 11, or thereabouts.

Bigelow wrote that the plant closure was the company’s only option “to remain a leader in the highly competitive commercial printing industry.” He says an economic downturn and changing advertising environment have created excess capacity.

It’s unclear how the closure might affect incentives the company received from local governments.
