The Plymouth Common Council approved a $750,000 forgivable loan allowing the DFA finance a $13.4 million upgrade to its cheese processing plant north of Milwaukee.
Work on the upgrade is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2011 and would finish by the end of the year. The loan will be forgiven if the plant continues to employ over 300 full-time equivalent employees throughout the next five years. The plant, which currently employs 357 people, will not add jobs but will ensure existing jobs remain there.
