Muth Mirror Systems, the company that invented a mirror-based LED Blind Spot Detection Technology used by car companies to make vehicles safer, is undertaking a $3.7 million expansion of its operations center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The company plans to expand its building, purchase new equipment and train its employees on-site, creating around 140 jobs over the next few years.
The company plans to purchase equipment and almost double its current building square footage during the next 12 months to support its growth from global customers. The company also expects to add 14 new assembly lines between 2013 and 2014 with the purchase of new equipment.
“We commend Muth Mirrors for making this major investment in growth. This expansion by Muth is a tremendous boost to Sheboygan’s economy,” said Gov. Scott Walker.
The company is eligible for $571,000 in tax credits through the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. The tax credits will be distributed annually based on the number of new, full-time positions created over a three-year period.
“We are pleased to partner with Muth Mirror Systems to help them meet the increase customer demand for their patented mirror technology,” said Reed Hall, CEO and secretary of WEDC.
