MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state has approved $45 million in bond authority for a central Wisconsin factory that could eventually create 600 jobs.
Energy Composites plans to build a plant that will produce turbine blades for wind farms. The company already employs about 70 people in Wisconsin Rapids where it develops composite materials used by chemical companies to reduce their use of mercury.
The Journal Sentinel reports the turbine factory is expected to initially employ about 200 people when it opens early next year.
