Appvion files for bankruptcy

The company announced dozens of layoffs several weeks ago.

The company sought bankruptcy protection to "restructure its business for long-term success."

The company expects to continue business as usual during the restructuring, according to a statement.

Appvion has plants in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania and employs 1,400 people, according to an August news release.
