Merz North America is planning to soon expand in two of its Right to Work Wisconsin facilities. These are in Sturtevant and Franksville. In order to make these two expansions, the company is investing a total of $8 million toward the project. As a result, Merz North America will create 35 new jobs. So it’ll be a great economic addition to the state!
From Area Development Magazine:
“The additional funding from WEDC has definitely given us the ability to do some additional project work, we were able to get some equipment ordered sooner because we didn’t have the funding for that. […] It ultimately got us making these improvements sooner in the program than was originally expected.”
Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is supporting the project by authorizing up to $160,000 in state income tax credits over the next three years. The actual amount of tax credits Merz will receive is contingent upon the number of jobs created. […]
“Merz has a global presence in its industry and Wisconsin plays a critical role in its operations. […] Its continued presence and job creation in Wisconsin is an effort WEDC can proudly support.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
