Deluxe Corp. has announced plans to close its Greensboro, N.C. manufacturing facility in 2009 and lay off 117 people. Deluxe also plans to close a manufacturing facility in North Wales, Pa., and a manufacturing facility and call center in Thorofare, N.J. The company is also trimming another 570 people from its workforce. The company makes custom printed checks, forms, business cards, stationery, greeting cards, labels and retail packaging supplies. \"These were difficult decisions to make because of the impact on both our employees and three communities,\" said Delux CEO Lee Schram.

This company used to have plants almost in every state. Just about all of them closed. Most of these sites became Superfund sites due to years of dumping extremely toxic chemicals into the local ground water from their printing plants. Many of them are still active sites being cleaned up. Surprised that this has never made national headlines.
Yeah, the Greensboro site was a real pig sty. The site manager was a creep. I quit that place a few years before it closed.
Those sites were all dumps anyway.
