ERCO Worldwide announces $18 million expansion in Port Edwards

PORT EDWARDS (WAOW) -

An $18 million expansion has been announced for a business in Port Edwards.

ERCO Worldwide officials say this move will double their production size of hydrochloric acid. The Canadian based company has only two American plants, including the one here in Central Wisconsin.

Officials say it won't bring too many more jobs, but that the development will be good for the area.

"ERCO is one participant in the local area looking at overall economic development for south Wood County. We are personally very pleased we can bring this additional capital to the city," ERCO Worldwide Plant Manager Geoff Bertin said.

Plant leaders say they expect the project to get started later this year. They say they hope to begin production in 2014.
