Health care labeling company to lay off 74 in Winston-Salem

A Garner-based health care labeling and packaging company will close its facility in Winston-Salem and lay off 74 workers, according to a filing with the N.C. Department of Commerce.

RLG Healthcare says the Winston-Salem operation, located at 3360 Lexington Road, will cease operations on June 14. The company plans to shift its work to its Garner location.

Thirty-four employees will be offered positions at the Garner location, which is about 90 minutes away. Other employees can apply for positions in Garner when they become available.

A handful of workers will remain at the Winston-Salem plant in a transition phase after it closes. The plant makes pharmaceutical labels.

Senior Vice President Hunter Rost cited “changing business needs” as a reason for the closing in a letter to state officials. It manufactures labels, cartons, inserts, medical guides and physician support literature for pharmaceutical and healthcare customers.

RLG Healthcare also has facilities in California, New Jersey, New York and Utah. Its parent Tennessee-based Resource Label Group is owned by Los Angeles-based Ares Management, a publicly traded investment management company.

RLG Healthcare was created as a separate division of Resource Label Group just last month. Its CEO is Kevin Grogan.
