GOEX On the Go to Iron County
The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) today announced GOEX will expand in Utah’s Iron County, adding up to 100 jobs, $1.8 million in state revenue, and an estimated $15 million in capital investment.
“We are excited that GOEX would select Utah for their Western operation,” said Val Hale, executive director at the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “There is tremendous growth and opportunity in Iron County.
GOEX Corporation was founded in 1990 and is based in Janesville, Wisconsin. GOEX operates one of the most advanced custom plastic sheet extrusion facilities in the industry. The company’s products and materials serve the graphics, medical, and food packaging industries. The new facility in Iron County will take cues from the 235,000 square foot facility the company recently completed in Janesville in 2015.
“Our new Cedar City, Utah location supports GOEX’s ongoing commitment to ensure timely delivery of extruded sheet products,” said Joshua Gray, president and CEO of GOEX. “The new facility will help us better serve our customers in the western areas of the country. We intend to build on the success of our current plant, built specifically for our processes. And we are eager to witness firsthand the great things we have been told about the workforce in southwest Utah.”
“This expansion project is a good example of persistence and creative problem-solving at the local level,” said Theresa Foxley, president and CEO of EDCUtah. “We at EDCUtah were pleased to support Cedar City’s efforts throughout the process.”
“We have enjoyed working with GOEX throughout this site-selection process and we are thrilled that they have chosen Cedar City as their location for expansion,” said Danny Stewart, economic development director for Cedar City and Iron County. “GOEX is an outstanding company with a solid reputation and a culture that fits perfectly in our community. They make top-quality products and they truly value their employees and their customers. This company will have a tremendous positive impact on Iron County and southwestern Utah. This is a huge win for Utah and Cedar City.”
