Cheese Producer Saputo to Close Wisconsin Plant

March 27, 2014 01:32 AM
 

A major employer in New London, Wis., says it will be shutting its doors.

Saputo Cheese says its New London plant will close by Aug. 23. Sixty-seven people will lose their jobs.

The plant has been in operation in New London for more than 60 years.

Saputo says it would cost too much money to update the plant to modern standards.

New London Mayor Gary Henke tells WLUK-TV he's disappointed but not surprised by the news. Saputo has been cutting back operations over the past year.

The Montreal-based company is closing three other plants, one in Maryland and two in Canada. The closings are set to begin in May and be finished by December 2015.
