PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) The company that makes Rust-Oleum anti-rust spray paint will spend $1.3-million to expand its production plant in Kenosha County. Governor Scott Walker visited the Rust-Oleum factory in Pleasant Prairie yesterday. He said the company made employee training a part of its expansion, and he praised the firm for that.
The addition will allow Rust-Oleum to make smaller amounts of new paint colors. It’s expected to create 54 new jobs. If it does, Wisconsin taxpayers will provide $350,000 in tax breaks through the state’s Economic Development Corporation.
