The employees were notified of the shutdown Tuesday morning. The news comes just two months after the company announced more than 500 people would be losing their jobs.

In June, the company announced the bleach board machines, extrusion plant, woodyard, pulp mill and a significant portion of the energy complex at the mill will all be closing by the end of the year.
