Masters Gallery Foods in Oostburg, Wis., is expanding in Oostburg, Wis., with a more than $60 million investment that will add 105 jobs to Sheboygan County. Wisconsin Gov Tony Evers made the announcement recently, accompanied by Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes. The WEDC will supply Masters Gallery with up to $1.5 million in performance-based state tax credits.
Evers said Wisconsin was glad to make the investment in Masters Gallery “not only on their success and growth, but in the new opportunities for good-paying jobs for the hard working people in northeastern Wisconsin," reports WHBL.
“Whether they’re working at Kohler or they’re working at Masters Gallery, or Sargento, or Sartori, it doesn’t make any difference…people that live in this area are hard-working people, they care about the things that are important, they care about schools, they care about working as hard as they can to make the products that they do.”
Evers was especially proud of Wisconsin’s signature dairy industry. “We’re not called America’s Dairyland for nothing," he said. "We're No. 1 in cheese production in the U.S., Wisconsin’s dairy industry is not only a vital part of our economy, but it’s core to our heritage.” About 15 percent of America’s cheese goes through Plymouth, Wis., where Masters Gallery is based.
