INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gannett Publishing Services announced they will be closing half of the presses at its Georgetown road location.

The announcement was part of a WARN notice posted by the State of Indiana on Thursday.

Gannett will reduce the site’s operations from four presses to two.

“Certain of the production employees working at that location will be affected by the closing of the production operation,” Gannett wrote in the notice. The company expect to lay off 56 workers in early March.
