St. Cloud Losing Quad/Graphics Plant

(St. Cloud, MN) -- Quad/Graphics is closing its facility in St. Cloud this summer, throwing 280 people into unemployment. According to the "St. Cloud Times," the job cuts represent the largest mass layoff in the area in over a dozen years. Company officials will shut down production in late August. The closure is due to the purchase of Brown Printing Company in Waseca by Quad/Graphics.
