LINDEN, Ala. (AP) - Caraustar Industries is closing its plant in Linden, Ala., which will idle about 20 workers.
Human Resources Director Frank Snyder says the closing will occur before the end of the first quarter of the year. He blamed it on economic conditions.
Caraustar, based in Austell, Ga., has had a plant in Linden for about 20 years. It makes recycled paperboard tubes for other companies. The plant's work will be transferred to Caraustar plants in Corinth, Miss., and Cantonment, Fla.
Snyder said employees will be offered severance packages and job
openings at other Caraustar plants.
