Rockline Industries Inc., a family-owned wet wipe manufacturer, is investing $19.7 million to create 54 jobs over the next three years in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
The company plans to double its household disinfecting wipes manufacturing capacity with most of the expansion taking place at its factory at 1113 Maryland Ave.
“Rockline has a long history of supporting Sheboygan County and the State of Wisconsin,” said Craig Roush, executive vice president, Rockline Industries. “The WEDC’s assistance is welcomed and will help us continue to grow our presence here now and for years to come.”
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is supporting Rockline’s expansion with up to $380,000 in state income tax credits over the next three years. The actual amount of tax credits Rockline will receive is contingent upon the number of jobs created and the amount of capital investment during that period.
“WEDC is proud to be able to assist Rockline in continuing its growth in Sheboygan County,” said Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of WEDC. “These expansions will allow Rockline to double production of disinfecting wet wipes.”
Founded in 1976 by Ralph Rudolph, Rockline has three main products: wet wipes, coffee filters and baking cups. The company, which has five locations in Sheboygan County, is now run by Rudolph’s sons, Randy Rudolph and his brothers, Rob and Rich Rudolph. Rockline also has manufacturing facilities in Arkansas, New Jersey, Tennessee and England.
