Project Description: 

Our sister plant in Sheboygan WI is closing and production is being transfered to the Monroe LA plant. Currently the Monroe plant employs about 75 people and the Sheboygan plant about 400. Some of the management jobs will stay in WI but about 250 manufacturing jobs will be created in Monroe over the next 12 months. Expenditures for the building expansion and move are being funded by local and state funds thanks to the efforts of Governor Jindal and Mayor Mayo. Preliminary plans are to expand the Monroe plant by +-180000 square feet to accomodate the new assembly lines, offices, and alunminum die cast foundry. The expected completion date for the transfer of production is March 31, 2010.
