PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI (WTAQ) - A large distributor of business packaging materials plans to double the size of its headquarters in Kenosha County.
Governor Scott Walker made the announcement Tuesday morning at Uline's facility in Pleasant Prairie.
The firm plans to add a second warehouse with a million square feet, plus a second office building with about 200,000 square feet.
In a statement, the governor said Uline would spend about $100 million on the expansion -- and unlike the original project, taxpayers will not provide funding.
The company received about $6 million in incentives to move its headquarters from Waukegan Illinois to Pleasant Prairie in 2008. About 1,000 jobs were created in that project.
In 2012, Uline moved another distribution facility from neighboring Minnesota to Hudson in far western Wisconsin.
