ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Seal-Rite Door, a company that designs high-performance doors for homes, announced it will relocate its operations from Rockford, Illinois to Beloit, Wisconsin.

The move is expected to bring around 80 jobs to the Beloit area through the company's $16 million expansion plan.

Company spokespeople say Seal-Rite is moving to accommodate its growing business. Leaders say equipment at the new facility will help improve production and efficiency for the company.

“This is a significant milestone for the future Seal-Rite, and we look forward to our success and continued growth in Beloit. We are excited about working together with the local community to find the skilled workforce necessary to make that a reality,” said Ron Calhoun, president and CEO of Palmer-Donavin, who supported the move.

Seal-Rite Door, which was created in 1981, has operated in Rockford for more than 15 years. The organization will open a 105,000-square-foot facility in the Wisconsin Stateline Industrial Park by early next year.
