It is not necessarily new news to some living in the area, but the Door County Economic Development Corporation is making sure others know of the opportunities available locally. The DCEDC announced Thursday that area manufacturers in and around the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park are looking to hire over 400 people for open positions in the coming months. DCEDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says it is impressive to have a single business see the growth they are seeing with twelve different manufacturers in Sturgeon Bay.
Hatco’s Vice President of Manufacturing Steve Christoferson says it is important to let people know that the opportunities exist and they do not even need to be experienced to do it.
The news came as Door County high school sophomores toured the 12 different businesses being featured during this weekend’s Manufacturing Day. Businesses will be hosting open interviews on Saturday to address their position needs.
