A Freeport manufacturer breaks ground on a multi-million dollar expansion.
Modern Plating held a ceremony Tuesday morning. They specialize in metal finishing. Its new facility on Hancock Ave. boasts more than 26,000 sq. ft. of space. It’ll be used to store metals like zinc and nickel. The expansion is expected to create 12 jobs.
“We hope to fill them with younger people,” said President/CEO Jim Stenberg. “We’re actually beginning to bring in people now because it takes awhile to get somebody trained. You can’t go to school for what to do.”
Construction on the new facility is expected to be complete by March. It will be fully operational in July.
