ESCANABA - Papermaker NewPage is cutting 300 positions companywide, but isn't saying how many jobs will be lost at its Escanaba, Michigan plant.
The Escanaba plant currently employees more than 1,000 workers, according to the company's website.
NewPage said in a released Thursday that "an undisclosed number of salaried positions were eliminated in Escanaba this week."
NewPage emerged from bankruptcy protection at the end of 2012. But the company says it is still looking to reduce costs with the declining demand for paper products.
NewPage used to own mills in Kimberly and Niagara. They both closed in 2008, leaving behind hundreds of jobs.
There are still three NewPage plants operating in Wisconsin. They are in the central part of the state. There is no word on if any jobs will be cut at those plants.
