Urbana, IA (PRWEB) October 19, 2015
The media are invited to attend Clickstop's groundbreaking celebration event Friday, October 23rd to mark the beginning of construction of a multi million dollar company expansion that will bring an estimated 100 new jobs to the area through the end of 2018.
Company Founder and CEO Tim Guenther unveiled the $6 million expansion plan in June. Actual groundbreaking of the site is taking place October 19th. The event offers the chance for not only employees to celebrate the company’s continued growth, but also for the local media, business partners, and community officials to learn more about the expansion. Building tours and media packets are planned, along with an opportunity for Q&A sessions, and a tailgate-themed lunch.
Clickstop owns and operates several brands from its two facilities in Urbana. The company serves diverse markets ranging from the moving and cargo control industries to energy efficient insulation, fasteners and home storage solutions.
The company has continued to experience rapid growth since it was founded by Guenther in 2005. This is the company’s second building expansion to its Blue Creek Drive office since the building was constructed in 2011. Over the past decade, Clickstop has surged from a handful of employees to more than 120. Two years ago, the company began manufacturing ratchet straps and other tie-down products for its flagship brand US Cargo Control. Since then, the brand’s customer base, and product lines have continued to boom.
“It is an exciting time at Clickstop, with the further investment in manufacturing, continued hiring, and focus on improving our workplace culture.” said Guenther. “We’re looking forward to having local media and community officials come and see what we have planned as we kick off this new phase of growth.”
