Seal-Rite Door, U.S. fibreglass manufacturing unit of building materials maker Palmer-Donavin, announced plans to expand its operations from Rockford to Beloit.

Seal-Rite Door will invest $16 million in its expansion plans bringing more than 80 jobs to Wisconsin.

The new expected jobs will generate about $1.4 million in state income tax revenue over a five-year period.

With support from Wisconsin Economic Development Corp, which is awarding Seal-Rite up to $250,000 in state tax credits over the next three years, the project could indirectly generate 81 additional jobs in the region.
