CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- An east-central Wisconsin factory is expanding and adding jobs.
A spokesman for Hoffmaster Group tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/OhmeaE) the company is expanding its Creative Converting plant in Clintonville. The 100,000-square-foot addition is expected to be finished by mid-January.
The company expects to add 40 full-time hourly workers and 10 salaried workers. About 460 people currently work at the plant.
The company is consolidating operations by closing an InnoWare facility in Menomonee Falls and laying off 100 people there. Creative Converting bought InnoWare last year.
According to its website, Creative Converting makes paper party supplies and serves businesses with custom or private label printing and manufacturing.
The company is based in Menomonee Falls.
