InSinkErator expanding in Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:
RACINE (WKOW) -- InSinkErator, a Racine company best known for making garbage disposers, on Thursday announced plans to open another manufacturing plant in Kenosha and will upgrade its facility in Racine.

The company says the expansion represents a $65 million investment. Company president Tim Ferry says InSinkErator will add 165 jobs in the next four years, in return for $15 million in state tax credits.

The company says it will increase manufacturing by leasing a building in Kenosha's business park and the first production line in the Kenosha facility is expected to be running by mid-2015. Renovating the existing Racine facility will be a $44 million project, which includes buying new equipment.

InSinkErator's website says it invented food waste disposers in 1927, and is currently the world's largest manufacturer of disposers and hot water dispensers for home and commercial use.
