Roses Southeast Papers is planning a $7.5 million expansion of its production center in Sanford, Florida. The Albuquerque, New Mexico-based company, which manufactures napkins, tissues, and paper bags, will add 50 new jobs at the facility.
The Orlando Business Journal reports that the company is seeking a $100,000 grant from Sanford and the Seminole County Job Growth Incentives Program. The program can provide up to $2,000 for each new job created to the company.
Roses will add manufacturing line operator and administrative positions to supervise the facility's operations, according to the Sanford center's CEO and general manager Enrique Todd. It currently employs 79 people. Renovations are expected to be complete by August.
