MARINETTE, WI – Winsert, Inc. officially broke ground on its latest plant expansion on Friday. Winsert employees attended a golden shovel groundbreaking ceremony kicking off the 20,000 square foot expansion, which is slated to be complete in early 2019.

“From our 2012 plant and office expansion to our 2016 R&D expansion, we are now back to expanding our plant once again in 2018 – this is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of our great family of employees”, Winsert president & CEO, Trisha Dickinson Lemery said. “We are proud of this expansion, which will be dedicated to increasing our precision machining and grinding capacity and we are proud of the fact that we are a growing, thriving family business in this great community.”

Included with this expansion, Winsert will be looking at increasing their workforce by 20 to 25 employees over the next several years if business projections remain true. These positions would include hourly positions from machine operators to foundry personnel to general labor as well as salaried positions from engineers to metallurgists. “We, at Winsert, pride ourselves in the work we do and the difference we make within the industries we serve and our communities in which we live. We continuously strive to be an employer of choice within our community and we look forward to expanding our Winsert family.”

Lemery went on to thank Winsert’s customers across the globe for the strong partnerships that have been built. “We want to thank our great customers around the world for partnering with Winsert and continuing to trust in our proven solutions. This expansion is evidence that Winsert’s new generation of alloys is being well received in the global marketplace and reinforces Winsert’s stance as a leading provider of innovative alloy solutions”, Lemery said. “As cobalt instability remains and prices continue to fluctuate, our OEM partners are consistently seeing the value that our materials bring to their applications both in terms of the proven performance as well as substantial cost savings. For that, I am glad we are making a positive difference for them.”
