The WestRock corrugated packing plant in Uncasville will close permanently,according to The Day. The 85 employees have been informed about the decision.

“It’s about matching our supply and our system to our customers’ demands,” McNeil said, as quoted by The Day.  “We’ve got a big mill system, and we have to be able to match the entire supply.”

The Uncasville mill was one of four plants that WestRock, formerly known as RockTenn, was "indefinitely idling” following its purchase of SP Fiber Holdings Inc. in October.

WestRock owns more than 30 plants in the U.S., Brazil and India.
