Hankscraft Vice President of Operations Ron Wright said 30-35 additional jobs will be added to its Reedsburg facility. The jobs will mainly consist of manufacturing with some low-level management positions. The positions will be permanent and full-time with wages Wright said “will be comparable with the local manufactures.”
“We’ve hired a few positions more on the managerial side of business and our goal is to start bringing in the manufacturing jobs in mid-to late December of this year,” Wright said.
The decision to bring the existing product line to the facility in Reedsburg was at the request of the company Hankscraft has partnered with.
“We’re refreshing the product look and features,” Wright said. “So the design has changed, it’s not the existing design.”
