Graphic Packaging International Canada, a subsidiary of Graphic Packaging Holding Company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, has closed its thermo mechanical paperboard mill in Jonquiere, Quebec.

The company states its decision was made after a thorough assessment of the facility's manufacturing capabilities, associated costs and market demand for its products. The closure will affect approximately 140 employees.

"The closing of the Jonquiere facility was a difficult decision. We are working closely with the affected employees to provide support and assistance," said Mike Doss, President and Chief Operating Officer.

The company anticipates one-time costs of $4 to $5 million in the second half of 2015 related to this closure. Graphic Packaging Holding Company is one of the largest producers of folding cartons and holds a leading position in coated unbleached kraft and coated recycled board.
