MILWAUKEE, May 7, 2013 (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) -Rock-Tenn Co. will close a corrugated box plant on Milwaukee's north side where 69 people now work.

The Georgia-based firm notified state officials Tuesday that it would shutter the factory as of July 5.

Most employees at the plant, 2800 W. Custer Ave., will move to other Rock-Tenn box factories in the Milwaukee area, a company spokeswoman said. She said Rock-Tenn is shutting down Custer Ave. operation because the firm has more plant and equipment capacity than it needs.
