Paper plant workers face furloughs

-A A +A
By Chris Sardelli

An area paper plant is feeling the effects of a slow economy, and has made plans to furlough more than 100 employees.

AbitibiBowater, located just across the Lancaster County line in Catawba, will shut down one of its three paper machines for one month in an effort to save money.

The No. 1 machine, which creates paper from pulp, is operated by 123 people, which includes 101 production employees and 22 maintenance workers. Those people will be temporarily out of work from March 1 through March 31. Employees will be back to work starting April 1.
