Aptar Group plans expansion in Mukwonago

MUKWONAGO - 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 two-million dollars to upgrade its facility and three-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 $1.4 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.
