International Paper Co. will temporarily shut down some of its machines at its mill in Georgetown, where it is a major employer.
The company said it will halt production on one of its paper-making machines for two weeks starting at the end of June, idling 30 employees. A second machine will shut down for one week, affecting an undisclosed number of workers.
The shutdown will allow International Paper to match the mill's production rate with consumer demand, said spokeswoman Susan McPherson.
The Georgetown mill employs about 650 workers.
