A company spokesperson has announced that the printing and advertising services company is closing their San Antonio location, due in large part to the recent merger with American Color Graphics. ACG is currently under Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection, and the move is a part of a broader company reorganization in the hopes of emerging from bankruptcy. The merger also created a location overlap, and the closure of the S.A. location is necessary to stay competitive. Vertis is also under Chapter 11 protection.
The news will affect about 90 local employees. Movement to shutter the facility has been taking place since Dec. 9, with employees encouraged to seek other jobs within Vertis. Long-term employees were not left high and dry, as the company said they are providing them with extended financial support.
