Corrugated packaging manufacturer to move Illinois plant to Pleasant Prairie

L&M Corrugated Container Corp. plans to move its Zion, Ill. operations to a 99,838-square-foot building that it plans to purchase in Pleasant Prairie.

The company, which also has a plant in Platteville, plans to move all of its equipment and all of its 43 full-time and two part-time employees from its Zion, Ill. plant to Pleasant Prairie.

The Pleasant Prairie facility was built on a 9.25-acre site in 2003 and is currently vacant. The facility was listed for sale on Loopnet with a $4.45 million asking price.

“Transferring the Zion plant to Pleasant Prairie will permit an efficient arrangement of proposed equipment,” the company said in an operational plan submitted to the village. “L&M will then be positioned to increase sales and profits beyond current limitations.”

Currently the Zion facility produces 40 percent of the company’s output with 63 percent of the company’s employees due to the age of the equipment and the plant layout, the company said in its operational plan.
