It may be just the glimmer of hope our local economy has been waiting for. Crystal Finishing Systems is taking over the old SNE Enterprises building in the Mosinee Industrial Park. That factory has been setting empty since SNE shut down last year - leaving hundreds without a job.
Crystal Finishing Systems already has facilities in Schofield, Weston, and River Falls employing nearly 550 people. Now the company is expanding and adding the Mosinee facility. The President of Crystal Finishing Systems, Mark Matthiae, says "Over the next 3 years we can create about 250, 300, maybe 350 new jobs."
Crystal Finishings will be install all new equipment to accommodate new capabilities with the hopes of expanding its current client list. This means no existing equipment or team members will be moved to the Mosinee location - meaning it's all brand new. The turn around time is expected to be fast as Matthiae says they hope to be in full production by the end of this year or the early part of 2014.
If you're interested in applying for a job, the company hopes to have anticipated hiring dates by July 2013.
