FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - A specialty paper mill in Massachusetts is closing its doors after 43 years of operation, leaving about 40 employees without jobs.

The Sentinel & Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1KFGQ9F ) reports that Crocker Technical Papers will close its Fitchburg facility by the end of the year.

The owner, Neenah Paper Inc., has experienced difficulty attracting a buyer because the company doesn’t own the property or building housing the mill.

Crocker has long produced multilayered papers, boards and specialty papers used to protect documents.

Bill McCarthy, a Neenah vice president, says the mill’s operation is no longer sustainable or efficient.

Employees have been notified of Crocker’s closing and McCarthy says administrators are working with the state’s transition team to provide support.
