International Paper plant idled

MOSS POINT – Weak markets have been blamed for a temporary shutdown at the International Paper plant here that will idle about 500 workers for up to two weeks.

Mill manager Ed Locke said that a lack of demand in the paper industry necessitated the slowdown, which has affected other International Paper plants worse than the Moss Point Mill. Company wide about 800 people are being laid off in 1999, with 450 of those jobs at the International Paper plant in Mobile.
