CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A ceremonial next step is taken on a new manufacturing facility for Ashley Furniture Industries.
The 127- thousand square-foot facility is in Chippewa Falls near the northern Wisconsin state fairgrounds.
It will serve as an upholstery manufacturing site. Ashley furniture bought the facility from spectrum industries in April.
The hope is to create up to 200 new jobs.
The Chippewa Falls plant will not affect any operations at the company’s headquarters in Arcadia.
