Quad/Graphics to close Dubuque plant

SUSSEX, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s largest commercial printing company says it will close a plant in Dubuque Iowa.

Quad/Graphics blames changes in the industry, including a new popularity of E-books. Dubuque’s production will be moved to Quad’s other U.S. plants.

The Dubuque plant has been on the downside for months. 24 jobs were cut last May, and the firm said in August it would eliminate up to 60 jobs by the start of 2013.

The closing affects 215 workers – but it’s not clear whether those jobs will be offered at other Quad plants.

Quad/Graphics is based in Sussex.
