PLYMOUTH – The recent approval of local assistance from the city of Plymouth and the state of Wisconsin to support Dairy Farmers of America, Inc.’s (DFA) investment in machinery and continued operations in Plymouth was a coordinated effort between many project partners. The Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) worked closely with DFA officials and their tax advisory and consulting firm, Ryan, the city of Plymouth, Wisconsin Department of Commerce, Lakeshore Technical College, and others to arrive at a meaningful assistance package which met the needs of the company and will likely result in DFA’s continued operations in Sheboygan County.
Sheboygan, on the western shore of Lake Michigan, was one of the earliest jumping-off points for pioneers and settlers. River traffic, and later rail, helped the city become a substantial trading and manufacturing center. Today this thriving Midwest community is the county seat and enjoys the nickname of the Bratwurst Capital of the World, a tip of the hat to the largely German immigrants who were among the city's earliest inhabitants.
Officials from Pentair, Inc., the City of Sheboygan and the She-boygan County Economic Development Corporation announce the upcoming demolition of an exist-ing 272,000 square-foot facility located at 502 Indiana Ave.
