New manufacturing company brings 15 jobs to Peru

Posted by wlpo on February 23, 2016

While they bring in plenty of sales tax money, Peru doesn’t just want to be known for retail businesses.

The newest manufacturing business has opened in the old Casino Bingo building north of Interstate 80. Universal Forest Products makes wood related products that they ship to businesses which offer building materials. Right now they have a pallet contract with James Hardie.

Peru Economic Development Director Bob Vickrey says the company has about 15 employees and will double that next year.
