500 Jobs Being Cut In McHenry County

Jun 19, 2014

About 500 workers in northern Illinois will lose their jobs later this year. That's when printing company Quad-Graphics will close its operations in Woodstock.

The move stems from the firm's recent acquisition of Brown Printing Company. In addition to the Woodstock facility, Quad-Graphics will close a plant in Minnesota.

Officials say they hope to offer relocation to those who are willing.

Meanwhile, local leaders say they're worried about the impact because of the company's large presence in Woodstock. But they do say there are positions forĀ  workers at other local factories.
