MATTOON — LSC Communications Inc., the largest industrial employer in Coles County, will close its manufacturing facilities in Mattoon.

The facility, formerly R.R. Donnelley, has been open for 51 years. LSC also will close facilities in Strasburg, Virginia and Glasgow, Kentucky, by July. The Mattoon plant has 750 workers.

LSC owns the former Donnelley property in Pontiac, but it will remain open.

Mattoon's facility was issuing employee hiring announcements as recently as this week and partnered with Lake Land College on a fast-track training program for prospective employees.

According to Coles Together, the county economic development organization, LSC's employee roster trails only Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center, Eastern Illinois University and Lake Land College.

Including Tuesday's announcement, LSC will have closed eight facilities across various business segments and reduced its workforce by about 2,500 employees.
