FDL City Manager Comments On Saputo Closing

Fond du Lac’s City Manager feels Saputo Cheese employees in Fond du Lac will be able to get employment elsewhere once that facility closes. The company announced it will be closing by June 1st. City Manager Joe Moore says even with an upswing in the economy some companies find it hard to compete. He says, “It reminds us all that the economy is doing great, but that doesn’t mean that every individual company is or that that every individual company is making decisions to expand perhaps in other places where they have newer or more modern plants.” Moore feels with the skills those employees have they will have job opportunities if not in the City of Fond du Lac then in the County. He says the local economy should be able to support them as they look for alternatives.
