InSinkErator Expands Wisconsin Manufacturing Centers
“InSinkErator is proud to be part of both the Racine and Kenosha communities as we expand our presence and bring more jobs to southeastern Wisconsin,” said Tim Ferry, President of InSinkErator. “In the last 35 years, we’ve tripled our production at the Racine facility and we’re looking forward to continued growth with the addition of the Kenosha facility.”
According to the Kenosha Area Business Alliance, “The expansion will address the growing production needs at the current Racine manufacturing facility. The new facility will allow InSinkErator, the only U.S. based manufacturer of food waste disposers, to continue to deliver high-quality products and meet increasing customer demand with new innovations and streamlined production. Both facilities will manufacture a variety of products. The first production line in the Kenosha facility is expected to be operational by mid-2015.”
As an incentive to assist with the $65 million project, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation approved up to $15.5 million in tax credits through 2018 through its Enterprise Zone program. WEDC’s Enterprise Zone Tax Credits are available to assist businesses that have major expansion projects, or are relocating major business operations from other states.
"We are excited about the $43.7 million investment that InSinkErator has committed to its City of Racine manufacturing location, which attests to the company's continued commitment to be an employer of choice in Racine County,” said Jenny Trick, Executive Director of the Racine County Economic Development Corporation. “The company's investment further solidifies its reputation for quality products and reflects well on its workforce and management here in Racine.”
“InSinkErator’s expansion announcement is great news for southeastern Wisconsin and a very positive statement about their commitment to manufacturing in America,” said Todd Battle, President of the Kenosha Area Business Alliance. “This is a major win for the region that results in significant investment, new and upgraded facilities, and a significant increase in employment.”
