KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A company that's best known for its kitchen garbage disposers plans to open a new manufacturing plant in Kenosha, and expand its operations in Racine.
InSinkErator said Thursday it would lease a building in the Kenosha business park, where production is due to begin about a year from now. The firm also plans to renovate its current Racine facility and buy new equipment.
The total cost is $65 million, and the firm has promised to add at least 165 jobs in the next four years. The state is kicking in up to $15.5 million in tax breaks, depending on the final amount spent for improvements and the number of jobs actually created.
InSinkErator said it invented food waste disposers back in 1927. Today, it's the world's largest maker of disposers and hot water dispensers for both home and business use.
