Georgia-Pacific to close its Doraville plant

DORAVILLE —

Georgia-Pacific says it plans to permanently close a corrugated packaging plant in the Atlanta suburb of Doraville.

The Georgia-based paper and building products firm says the closing will affect about 90 employees in the town just northeast of Atlanta.

Company spokeswoman Karen Cole says operations are expected to be completely shut down in April. Employees are being encouraged to apply for other openings within the company.

Georgia-Pacific has two other packaging plants in the state - in Augusta and Albany.

Cole said much of the business from the Doraville plant will be absorbed into the Augusta and Albany facilities.

Half of the company's more than 6,000 Georgia employees in work in metro Atlanta. The company employs a total of about 35,000 workers.
