Lawrence's Hallmark plant will be getting as many as 125 more employees in the coming months, as the Kansas City, Mo.-based company consolidates its production operations for greeting cards.
Hallmark is moving 125 jobs out its its Leavenworth plant, and will send "the vast majority" of them - and their equipment - to Lawrence, said Julie O'Dell, a Hallmark spokeswoman. Hallmark's plant in Topeka also may get some of the work.
The transfers will begin in April and continue through August, O'Dell said.
The Leavenworth plant will continue with 500 employees, making giftwrap and partyware.
