RACINE – Two Racine County

manufacturing and office space to its factory. The expansion
will accommodate increased demand for the company’s industrial
weather treatment systems, according to the Racine County
Economic Development office.
Marlo’s expansion will result in 43 additional jobs over three
"We have grown our workforce to over 58 people and increased our
sales to $20 million," said Marlo President Michael Glines.
Racine-based Altus Vinyl will relocate and expand its operations
in the city to a new space on Patrick Street. The larger
facility will allow the company to more than double its
workforce from 12 to 25 employees within three years.
The company manufacturers vinyl products such as business card
holders, book jackets and retail display items.
"Although we considered many location options, preferably more
centralized in Racine County, our priority was to retain our
current employees, the majority of which live in the City of
Racine," said Altus founder Christine Burt.
