GOEX Corporation, a manufacturer of extruded plastic sheet products, is expanding and relocating its Janesville, Wis., operation.
GOEX will develop a rail-served greenfield site that will house a new 160,000-square-foot production, warehouse and corporate office facility. With a projected investment of $13 Million, this project will retain 130 positions and add another 70. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2013, with initial operations pegged for mid-to-late 2014.
Established in 1989, GOEX supplies various packaging and printing markets that range from medical to retail.
The City of Janesville and County of Rock are facilitating this project, with additional support pending from the State of Wisconsin. Architectural, mechanical, structural and site design services are being provided by Angus-Young Associates, Inc.
According to James Otterstein, Rock County Economic Development manager, “This project provides another visible example of the deep and strong manufacturing roots that exist within the Janesville-Beloit MSA. Additionally, it reinforces the critically important roles that public/private partnerships play within today’s competitive economic development arena.”
