LaCrosse Footwear to shift jobs to Indianapolis

LaCrosse Footwear Inc. will shut down two distribution centers in the La Crosse area, eliminating 32 jobs, and shift the work to a new plant to be built near Indianapolis, Ind. Company spokeswoman Erin Patterson told SBT that the firm had issued a request for proposals and received 40 responses from three markets, including La Crosse, to be the new location of its Midwest distribution center. The company said its criteria for the new site included: competitive annual costs; government/economic incentives; property tax abatement; foreign trade zone designation; accessibility to interstate transportation hubs; distribution center selection options and proximity to a major ground/air hub.
