Cook County - Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on Cook County's newest business. "Economically, this is a huge win for us," said Kerry Waldron, Economic Developer.
This building will be the newest distribution plant for Finishmaster, a paint production company that supplies the industrial and automotive industries. "This is their largest distribution facility, and the only time they've ever built a facility," said Waldron.
The company is closing its plants in South Florida and South Carolina and moving that business here. Economic Developer Kerry Waldron worked on recruiting them for more than a year, and says two factors made the difference for Cook County. "Being on I-75 and only 50 minutes from I-10, they've got a north-south as well as an east-west corridor, and also the cost to do business in our community is much cheaper than it is in the other facilities," said Waldron.
The plant will initially employ 24 people, but the facility was built with expansion plans in mind, and more jobs will likely follow. "We've already begun talking with them on expansion, we have room to build an additional 20,000 square feet for them that will allow them to expand their market," said Waldron.
Employees will start training at the plant January 23rd, and the plant should be in full production by the end of February.
