Bemis Co. Inc., the Neenah, Wis.-based plastic packaging giant, might be forced to lay off workers at its plant in Terre Haute, according to The Tribune-Star.

The company is sagging under slowing sales and high costs, a spokeswoman told the Terre Haute newspaper. Last week, Bemis said it would soon cut costs and “adjust staffing levels” to boost profits.

The Terre Haute site employs about 1,000, although the spokeswoman wouldn’t discuss specifics about potential layoffs.

Sales are weaker because consumers are buying fewer products wrapped in Bemis packaging.
