The American Printing Company, which has been under pressure to shed hundreds of jobs to cut costs, announced Monday it will continue to print at a plant in Alabama that employs fewer than 100 people.
The company says it plans to keep printing at the Somersetsville printing plant, but that the job cuts will likely result in about 1,000 jobs being eliminated in the next 12 months.
The American printing house has faced a string of layoffs in recent years.
In October, it announced a plan to close the Somersett plant.
The Somersett facility employs about 250 people, and American said in its filing that it plans not to cut any jobs in the Somersettsville plant.
American also plans to invest about $1 million in the facility, which is expected to open in 2020.
The move is another sign of pressure from the Trump administration to slash jobs in America’s printing industry.
The administration has been pushing to make it more cost-competitive, and has been pressuring printing companies to keep manufacturing in the U.S. That push has intensified since Trump took office, and the administration has cut jobs at dozens of American plants in recent months.
American has faced increasing pressure in recent weeks, with a report that said its local workforce has shrunk by about 20 percent over the past three years.
The agency has also announced it will lay off another 500 workers at the factory, and it has cut back on the number of employees it pays.
In a filing last month, the company said that while it will cut jobs in some areas, those cuts will be in areas that are competitive with the U to buy local goods.
