SC Johnson & Son Inc. plans to spend millions of dollars to expand its Bay City, Mich., plant that makes billions of Ziploc brand bags each year.
"This expansion will help us meet increased consumer demand for Ziploc, a flagship brand in our product portfolio," CEO Fisk Johnson said in a statement.
The project includes a new 56,000-square-foot building connected to the facility's primary product area, the company said.
Construction is scheduled to begin in May and production is expected in 2018 at the "multi-million dollar expansion," the company said.
The added capacity will result in 25 new full-time jobs, Racine, Wis.-based SC Johnson said.
