State Senator Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) today announced the state Controlling Board has approved an Ohio Enterprise Bond Fund Loan totaling more than $5 million to Wilbert, Inc. to assist in the purchasing of an existing facility as well as machinery and equipment as part of the company's expansion project in Bellevue. The project will result in the creation of 10 new, full-time jobs and also retain 158 others. "This project will create and keep jobs here in Huron County while helping Wilbert expand their operations to better meet the needs of their customers," Manning said. "Wilbert's expansion is great news for the future of manufacturing in northern Ohio, and I am pleased that Ohio was able to work with local and company officials to move this project forward." Wilbert manufactures highly-designed and technically-innovative plastic products to customers in the agriculture, automotive, construction, electronics, healthcare, recreation, and waste management industries.
