|Mayo hopeful company will remain, expand at air industrial park|
Monroe officials hope to keep 86 jobs here and bring in 200 more as a local company considers consolidating its business.
Mayor Jamie Mayo said Gardner Denver Thomas Inc., which has a facility in Monroe's industrial park, also has a facility in Sheboygan, Wis., with more than 200 employees.
The company is looking to consolidate the two operations. The company will remain in Monroe and transfer the employees from Wisconsin here, or the company will move its Monroe operations to Wisconsin.
"They are going to consolidate into one or the other," Mayo said. "So, we're working on putting together an incentive package to not only keep what we have, but get more here."
"I feel optimistic that we will put a good package on the table, and we will be competitive," he said. "It would bring in about 200 additional jobs. That would be a huge coup for the city and the region."
Mayo said the company would probably make a recommendation sometime in March.
"They are hoping to make the transition before the end of the year," Mayo said.
Gardner Denver Thomas manufactures vacuum pumps that are used in the petroleum and industrial markets.
The Gardner Denver project is one of several economic opportunities the city is pursuing. Last week during Mayo's "state of the city" address, he said the city had inked a deal for one undisclosed business to locate in Monroe, creating new jobs as well. The city expects to make an announcement regarding that new business soon.
Mayo also said another company wants to move into Monroe and establish a business that would create jobs averaging $30,000 annually.
