SHEBOYGAN – Saco Polymers has announced it’s building a
20,000-square-foot corporate office at its manufacturing
plant in the Sheboygan Industrial Park.
The Sheboygan-based manufacturer of plastics said the
project will allow for expanded research and design and
will house offices for the company’s fast-growing sales
and administrative personnel group.
Saco officials, in a company statement, said they
considered other locations such as Michigan and Ohio
before deciding on Sheboygan.
“We made a strategic decision in 2013 to choose
Sheboygan County for this expansion,” said Tom Wurm,
human resources director for parent company Aesse
Investments, “Michigan and Ohio were under
consideration, but we’ve been very successful with the
Sheboygan County employee base and business partners
here, among them county economic development.”
The company was assisted by the Sheboygan County
Economic Development Corp., as well as other local
officials in securing a $900,000 loan from the Wisconsin
Economic Development Corp. to help finance the project,
according to the statement.
