Georgia-Pacific will close a large part of its Camas pulp and paper operation, idling 280 or more workers, the Columbian reported Tuesday on its website.
The Vancouver, Wash., newspaper said the Atlanta-based paper company will shut down its production of paper used in printers and copiers, as well as pulping operations and some related equipment. It will keep its tissue business running.
Kristi Ward, a spokeswoman for the the paper company, said the decision stems from diving demand for communications paper, used in printers, copiers and the like.
““It’s just a situation where it’s a declining market place,” she told the Columbian. “People just aren’t using as much office paper as they used to.”
