WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis (WSAU) A national trucking company announced yesterday they're going to close their Wisconsin Rapids facility.
Ruan Transportation employs more than 5,000 people around the county. The shut-down in Wisconsin Rapids will cost the area 37 jobs. The company notified state officials of their decision yesterday. The last day at the site has not been made public.
Raun said the facility would have needed upgrades to handle newer, more modern trucks -- and they decided not to go forward with the project.
