Sartori Company Plans $14 Million Expansion At Antigo and Plymouth, Wisconsin, Cheese Production Plants
The project will enable the fourth-generation family-owned company to update equipment in its 100-year-old facility in Antigo, improve employee ergonomics, and enhance safety and sustainability initiatives, while expanding capacity and capabilities to enable ongoing growth.
“We are fortunate to be in Wisconsin where organizations like WEDC are available to help small companies accelerate their growth,” said Sartori President Jeff Schwager. “We have highly skilled team members and award-winning cheese that have led to growth over the past few years, and we’re looking forward to continue to grow in Wisconsin for years to come.”
Schwager said its expansion will have an economic benefit well beyond Sartori as it will mean more business for local farm families, milk haulers, constructions and engineering firms, and dozens of suppliers.
“The dairy industry is a vital part of Wisconsin’s economy, and we’re pleased that the State of Wisconsin is able to assist this strong family-owned business as it continues to expand and reach new markets,” said Gov. Scott Walker.
To assist with the financing of the project, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation certified up to $394,500 in Economic Development Tax Credits. The tax credits will be distributed annually based on the number of new, full-time positions created over a three-year period.
