Dutchland Plastics Announces Major Hiring and Growth Plan
Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Leap in Employee Compensation and Benefits
OOSTBURG, WI (May 18, 2017) – Dutchland Plastics, LLC (“Dutchland” or the “Company”), celebrating its 50th anniversary as a leading contract manufacturer of custom rotationally molded (“rotomolded”) plastics products, announced a major new compensation, benefits and growth plan affecting all existing and prospective employees in Wisconsin.
The growth plan includes adding 50 positions to the manufacturing team – applications are currently being accepted – raising starting pay and hourly wages, increasing the number of paid holidays, and conducting a full review of all benefit plans. The company will also continue to enhance its family-friendly activity programs.
Dutchland, which manufactures cutting-edge products like Yeti coolers, NuCanoe boats, and KI chairs, is the third largest contract rotational molder in the United States. Dutchland molds its products in two modern rotomolding facilities, totaling approximately 200,000 sq. ft., and performs an entire suite of value-added services including foaming, drilling, finishing, assembly, inspection, warehousing, and logistics. The Company’s manufacturing is highly differentiated with the capability to mold small, medium, and large size parts with complex geometries and tight tolerances, using a broad range of raw materials. The Company has more than doubled in revenue over the last three years and is poised to double again in the next three years.
“While we stand at the vanguard of becoming the largest and most advanced custom rotational molder in the United States, we understand the only way to fully achieve this strategic vision is to recruit and retain the best workers and recognize/reward outstanding performance,” said Clyde Swoger, chief executive officer of Dutchland. “With the introduction of this growth plan, replete with a new compensation and benefits program, we will meet these goals and ultimately realize the Company’s true potential.”
Chairman of the Board Nathan Myers added, “To be the very best, you can’t limit your focus to sales, operations, and finance. You need to ensure your workforce is motivated and focused on continuous improvement. With today’s actions, we are putting our people first, and we are confident in our ability to take this Company to the next level and become the employer of choice in Sheboygan County, if not all of Wisconsin.”
“For 50 years, Dutchland Plastics has provided quality jobs for members of our community. It’s wonderful that they’re continuing this tradition and expanding in Wisconsin’s Sixth District.”
– Congressman Glenn Grothman
“It’s great to hear that another business is expanding in Sheboygan County. Congratulations to Dutchland Plastics on your 50th anniversary. We hope to see you in the community for 50 more years!”
– State Senator Devin LeMahieu
“Congratulations, Dutchland Plastics, on your expansion announcement. I am pleased to hear of the growth and prosperity of such a long-standing company, as it celebrates 50 years of serving consumers with high-quality products. I offer my sincerest gratitude and best wishes to the company, as they continue to invest in the people of Sheboygan County.”
– Representative Terry Katsma
