STURTEVANT, WI (WTAQ) - About 300 Wisconsin jobs will move to North Carolina.
The Sealed Air Corporation said Wednesday it would move a total of 1,300 jobs to Charlotte over the next three years, as part of a major consolidation.
The Wisconsin jobs are with the Diversey cleaning products division which is based in Sturtevant, just west of Racine. The other jobs are being moved from South Carolina, Connecticut, and New Jersey where Sealed Air is based.
The company says the jobs will be moved in phases, and it will either sell its facility in Sturtevant or lease it to somebody else.
The move does not affect a Diversey distribution center in Sturtevant.
Earlier Wednesday, a North Carolina committee endorsed a tax break for Sealed Air. It will get up to $36 million over 12 years, if it meets designated goals for jobs and investments.
