The company is now hiring to fill 10+ new full time production and maintenance positions as a result of this expansion. Spectro emphasizes that plant employees average over USD$50,000 in gross wages, with excellent health benefits, 401k matching and profit sharing bonuses. The planned expansion has received support from the State of Minnesota’s Job Creation Fund, which provides a grant once investment and job creation goals are met.
This investment will allow Spectro to recycle a wider range of locally and regionally sourced aluminium products, improving the environmental footprint of recycling in Minnesota even further. “This is Phase 1 of a multi-year investment plan aimed at achieving those goals. Much more to come...”, says the company
