Utica sand company plans to add jobs with expansion

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2014

Love it or hate it the sand industry is doing good business.

According to the NewsTribune, Unimin Corporation in Utica plans to build onto their existing plant so they can double production and add 45 jobs. The company is adding new buildings with the tallest being almost 190 feet. Because of the height, Unimin asked the village board and planning commission to waive height restrictions which they did Tuesday night.

Besides an increased tax base, Unimin will also pay the village around $180,000 in building fees.
