International Paper wants everyone to know it is not leaving the Coastal Empire. Back in November, the company announced it was moving some operations to Memphis. Since then, there have been rumors that the entire company was leaving Savannah.
Spokesman Rick Ouellette tells WTOC 200 jobs are heading to Tennessee, but 1,200 jobs at their remaining three facilities will stay right here.
"When they hear the name International Paper, they think the entire operation would be leaving the Savannah community," Ouellette said. "That is not the case. We have a mill operating with 600 people and we have a container operation and Arizona chemical facility and they will continue in this community."
The offices which are leaving Savannah will begin moving in the spring.
