Norwood & BIC Graphic North America has announced it will close its Janesville, Wis., facility and relocate the operation to the company's Red Wing plant.
"After a strategic analysis of the Janesville operation, it was determined that moving their capabilities into Red Wing would improve both the customer experience and streamline operational capabilities," the company said in a press release issued Wednesday.
The company expects the move to be completed by April. The Janesville plant employs 75 workers. The release said those workers would be given a chance to retain their jobs if they choose to relocate.
“The decision to close the Janesville site has not been easy and it is not a reflection on the dedication or performance of our employees." BIC APP Chief Executive Officer Nicolas Paillot said.
Bic purchased Norwood in 2009.
