Now for some good news on the local job front, Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Tuesday announced the awarding of more than $1 million in state funding.
That money will help a major toy manufacturer open a new distribution center in Rochelle.
RC-2 Corporation will open the 400,000 square foot center next to the Union Pacific’s Global Three Intermodal Facility.
RC-2’s new distribution center will create 42 new jobs and retain eight.
