MANITOWOC (NBC 26) — Redline Plastics is expanding in Manitowoc, a project that will cost them about $6 million for the building and capital equipment..
The company announced they're building a 103,000 sq. ft. expansion to their manufacturing facility. Adding, it will more than double the production space of their current facility completed in December 2019.
The company is a manufacturer who produces plastics used in a variety of industries, as well as leather and textile cut and sew products.
In a press release, they said the space is needed due to rapid growth in their rotational molding and vacuum forming business.
“We had this expansion planned since the first half of the building started construction in 2019, but we did not anticipate expanding for at least a couple of years," said Nick Murray, vice-president of operations. "We are lucky to be in the position we are in and continue our investment in the area, our employees, and our customers. Without all of them, our success would be limited. Future employment levels are hard to estimate, but if our growth and ability to deliver quality products on time continues, we can more than double our workforce over the next several years.”
In 2019, they had 75 employs with that number now at 145 with about 25 open positions.
