Aptar Group expanding plant in Mukwonago

MUKWONAGO, WI (WTAQ) - A company that makes caps, valves, and pumps for food and household products is working on a $50 million expansion for its plant in Mukwonago.

State officials say the Aptar Group will get $2.3 million in tax breaks, if it keeps 424 jobs at the plant over the next five years. The plant has already been awarded $422,000 in tax credits, after spending $2 million to upgrade its facility and $3 million on research and development.

In addition, the village of Mukwonago is considering a request by the Aptar Group to install a rail spur which would connect the plant to a nearby Canadian National line.

The state and the village would share the $1.25 million cost for that spur, which would reduce Aptar’s costs for bringing in raw plastic materials.

Aptar is based in Crystal Lake Illinois, and it has about 12,000 employees worldwide.
