Full-Fill Industries is investing $11 million to double the size of its operations in Henning, Illinois. The company, a food aerosol manufacturer, will also create 150 new jobs there. The state will contribute a business investment package of $2.5 million towards the expansion.
"This project is a major growth initiative for our family-owned company," said David Clapp, president and CEO of Full-Fill. "We would not be in a position to move forward without the support we have received from the state of Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the Illinois Department of Transportation."
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is administering the state's $2.5 million business investment package, which consists of: Economic Development for a Growing Economy (EDGE) tax credits, Employer Training Investment Program (ETIP) job training funds to help enhance the skills of the company's work force, and a Community Development Assistance Program (CDAP) grant for infrastructure improvements. In addition, Vermilion County is applying for additional road improvement funds through the Economic Development Program administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
