Company: Chicago Fittings
Founded in: 1930
What they do: Chicago Fittings is an industry leader in the manufacturing of hydraulic and natural gas/ LP fittings.
How they’re growing: To meet the growing demand for its services, the company is relocating to Beloit from Belvedere, IL . Construction is under way on a $2.3 million project that calls for constructing a 30,000 square foot building and the addition of several pieces of manufacturing equipment, to allow the company enough space to accommodate future expansion needs.
Chicago Fittings is expected to move into the new facility by the end of October 2015. The company expects to add 25 employees by the end of three years.
What they’re saying: “Comparing state by state, there were tax incentives and job credit rebate programs that set Wisconsin and Illinois apart.”
