Andersen Corp. plans to expand an existing building at its Bayport, Minn., manufacturing facility and purchase new machinery as part of an $18 million expansion project. The expansion will create 100 full-time jobs, the company announced in a press release.
To assist the expansion, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development will award Andersen $625,000 from the Minnesota Job Creation Fund if the company meets its performance goals.
“The assistance we received from DEED, and organizations such as Greater MSP, helped ensure this significant expansion happened in our home state,” says Jay Lund, Andersen chairman, president and CEO. “We had several location options to choose from and selected Minnesota because of the experienced workforce, our integrated supply chain model and the ability to leverage capacity at our flagship plant in Bayport.”
