A Weston-based manufacturing company announced Thursday that it will add roughly 250 to 350 jobs and expand to Mosinee, a city that has lost hundreds of industrial jobs during the last two years.
Crystal Finishing Systems bought the former SNE Enterprises building, a 677,000-square-foot facility that closed last year, resulting in 550 layoffs.
It will expand some of its liquid- and powder-coating and aluminum extrusion work to the industrial park across Highway 153 from Central Wisconsin Airport. Crystal Finishing President Mark Matthiae said he wants to open the facility in Mosinee in part to attract manufacturing employees that might have been laid off in the last few years to work for his business.
“We really like central Wisconsin; there’s good, hard-working people here,” Matthiae said. “The Mosinee area, that area has got a good, experienced workforce.”
Crystal Finishing Systems currently employs 540 workers.
