CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- An Omaha company that makes retail-store fixtures has purchased the former O'Sullivan building and expects to begin production at the Cedar City facility as soon as January.
The Lozier Corp. expects to employ more than 100 workers at the operation during its first year.
The one-story, 534,589-square foot building has been vacant for 21/2years. Renovations are to start next month.
`'This is the 14th or 15th manufacturer here in Cedar City," Mayor Gerald R. Sherratt said. "We are grateful for the jobs they will bring, but more so for the caliber of jobs with high wages and competitive benefits."
Economic Development director Clark Kraus said Lozier's overall investment is estimated to be initially around $10 million, increasing to up to $25 million as it expands.
Lozier has manufacturing facilities in Nebraska, Alabama, Missouri and Pennsylvania.
