International Paper will shut down its plants in Stockbridge, GA and Hanford, CA, by the end of the year, Packaging Online confirmed.

Roughly 86 employees in Stockbridge and 90 in Hartford will be put out of work by the closures, which will happen in December.

Both facilities produce corrugated container products for industrial packaging, and, as Packaging Online noted, are among the smaller of the company’s plants. Both were in need of upgrades.

The news comes on the heels of last week’s announcements of closures in Ohio and Oregon.
