GOUVERNEUR — The immediate closure of Clearwater Paper Corp.’s Long Island tissue-converting facility will not affect operations at the company’s Natural Dam plant, a company spokesman said.

The closure of the plant in Central Islip will allow Clearwater to consolidate manufacturing at its other lower-cost tissue facilities, according to a company statement.

The closure affects about 155 employees who can apply for vacancies at other plants.

“We’re not necessarily moving jobs,” Clearwater spokesman Matthew P. Van Vleet said.
