ROME (WAOW) -- Greg Marx is the board chairman for PerMar and Precision Innovations, the company that bought a controlling interest of DeLeers Millwork, located in Green Bay.
That purchase means 20 to 30 new jobs for the Town of Rome.
"There are people out there that are out of work, and this is going to be a prime opportunity. Like I said, I hope all the jobs can be filled with Rome people. I know that's probably asking quite a bit," Rome Town Chairman Philip McLaughlin.
Marx says DeLeers will continue producing building materials in Green Bay.
But, those materials will be assembled at their facility located in the Town of Rome.
"The quality of the people there that have some working skills are very careful, and courtesy and enjoy their job - great types of people to have," Marx said.
The town chairman says if anything, it'll hopefully get rid of some of the for sale signs located outside houses around Rome and bring some new blood into town.
"That's important as well. Anytime we can bring in some more funds to our town businesses that's also a great thing," McLaughlin said.
Marx says the new positions will be assembly jobs that require workers to have previous experience with tools.
He also says they'll probably have to expand their facility.
Marx says his past experience with the Town of Rome makes it a great place to expand.
"Always enjoyed the atmosphere and the work ethic of the people. When the industrial park came about, we were somewhat at capacity at our Germantown facility, and I was able to negotiate within the town of Rome," Marx said.
