Quad Graphics to hire workers for Martinsburg plants

March 14, 2012|By DAN DEARTH |

Quad Graphics, an international printing company, plans to hire more than 20 workers to fill a variety of positions at two of its facilities in Martinsburg, W.Va., a corporate spokeswoman said.

Applications for some of those jobs will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Washington County One-Stop Job Center at 14 N. Potomac St. in Hagerstown.

Claire Ho, director of corporate communications at Quad Graphics in Wisconsin, said in an email that the magazine and catalog manufacturing facility on Caperton Boulevard wants to fill nearly 20 part-time and full-time positions, including an arrival and destination clerk, finishing equipment operators and entry-level finishing technicians.

“Many of these positions are for our part-time seasonal workforce, which we need during our busier second half of the year,” she said.


Ho said the company also plans to fill a variety of production positions at its Baker Road book manufacturing facility.

“These positions include multiple finishing equipment operators, distribution technicians and quality service representatives as well as a maintenance mechanic and an electrician,” she said. “We have been ramping up book manufacturing operations in this facility.”

Last April, Quad Graphics announced it would close its aging plant in Buffalo, N.Y., and would step up work at its facilities in Martinsburg and Leominster, Mass.

Quad Graphics is a global provider of print and related multichannel solutions for consumer magazines, special-interest publications, retail inserts, direct mail products, books, directories, and commercial and specialty products, according to a corporate news release.

The company has about 25,000 full-time employees who work in roughly 60 facilities in the United States, Canada, Latin America and Europe.
