LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- Construction for the new $20 million Siffron Distribution and Warehouse facility is underway.
Siffron breaks ground in the 4700 block of Interstate Boulevard in Loves Park with a new 300,000-plus square foot facility. There is potential to expand to nearly half a million square feet of space.
Siffron was founded in 2017 to create and supply solutions to current retail and brand manufacturing challenges. It's estimated that 150 new jobs will be added, not including the construction jobs.
"I think people need to look at and understand how great of a story Rockford is," said Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-16th District). "A lot of times, we can look at the difficulty and challenges, but then you see things like this being built... There is so much to celebrate. This is another piece and I think we will have a whole lot more in the future."
The goal is to have Siffron's new facility up and running by December.
