Rite-Hite Environmental Enclosures, a division of industrial products manufacturer Rite-Hite of Milwaukee, Wisc., said it will add a third shift at its Dubuque factory as soon as February of this year.
The company said it will hire approximately 100 manufacturing workers for assembly, industrial sewing, welding and CNC machining positions for its new 11 p.m.-to-7 a.m. shift, as well as bolster the facility’s first and second shifts, the company said in a news release Friday.
The division manufactures loading dock seals and shelters, the release said.
“We are experiencing record customer demand for our loading dock seal and shelter products right now, which has led to a very healthy number of orders to produce as effectively as possible,” said Sara Everts, Rite-Hite corporate marketing and communications director.
“Given our plant’s potential production capacity, state-of-the-art equipment and the excellent local workforce, it makes complete sense to keep growing our business in Dubuque.”
Rite-Hite’s Dubuque facility employs some 430.
