The city of Casa Grande last week announced plans to locate a 1-million-square-foot manufacturing plant by Kohler Co., the kitchen-and-bath giant. The site is across the road from the Frito-Lay plant on the west side of town.
Employment is projected at 425 within five years, and the announcement is not likely to be the last for a new industrial park in that area. Already, Lucid Motors is hiring people as fast as it can for its plants south of there.
Kohler, based in Wisconsin, is an international, diversified company and very successful. Casa Grande has been proud of its steady industrial growth in recent decades, but that now is coming at a faster pace. The news is exciting for many people, especially potential employees.
