HARIBO announced this past week that they will open their first North American manufacturing facility right here in Wisconsin.
The company’s $242 million-dollar investment is expected to create 400 good-paying jobs. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says this project will mark one of the largest investments in new operations by an overseas company in Wisconsin history.
Walker says the investment by HARIBO is evidence that Wisconsin’s economy and workforce are strong.
Construction of the 500,000-square foot facility is expected to start next year.
