Injection molder Contour Plastics Inc. qualifies for $250,000 in state tax credits for an expansion of its operations in Baldwin.
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle announced the credits June 8.
``We have to ensure all Wisconsin workers, companies and industries are prepared for the economy of the future, and that starts with upgrading and improving their abilities and creating jobs for hard-working citizens,'' Doyle said in an announcement.
Contour molds parts for the medical market and a diversity of other industries. It logged sales of $19 million last year, according to Plastics News' recent injection molders survey. The firm has 150 employees and 23 injection presses. Its capabilities include a portable clean room, multishot molding, thixo overmolding, painting, plating and prototyping.
The company will expand its floor space to 91,000 square feet from the current 46,000. It also will buy new equipment in the $3.5 million project, which is expected to create 35 jobs.
Contour officials were unavailable to provide more details or to clarify whether the project is a new version of expansion plans first revealed in 2002. The company was founded in 1990.
