Plastic canister line brings employment to 80
BUCYRUS, OHIO – Tuesday, November 15, 2022 – Diamond Wipes International announced today that they have completed a nearly five-million-dollar project for a production line at their facility in Bucyrus. The newly added line creates five full-time positions in addition to the 75 positions they currently employ.
“Diamond Wipes is growing, and the Bucyrus location generates about 20% of the company’s revenue,” said Carl Cole, General Manager. “This new line will allow our facility to manufacture in bulk as well as downsize to fit consumer needs.”
Diamond Wipes has two manufacturing and warehouse facilities in the United States, Bucyrus, and Chino, California, totaling just over 300,000 square feet and nearly 400 team members. The company has 7,000 different SKUs or stock-keeping units. Diamond Wipes is a contract manufacturer for major retailers and consumer brands. The new canister line will add to the already robust production at the Bucyrus location as well as add new products to the DWI portfolio.
“Bucyrus is seeing a trend of significant investment in our midsize manufacturers,” commented Bucyrus Mayor Jeff Reser. “These investments are creating jobs, and with a couple of notable manufacturers closing in the last months and years, it is encouraging to see capital investment.”
