The contract packaging and assembly service company, Prairie Industries, Inc., is expanding and researching the possibility of opening a third manufacturing plant in Lansing, Iowa. This would be in addition to the two plants presently located on the north and south ends of Prairie du Chien.
A post to Prairie Industries’ Facebook page last Wednesday, Feb. 15, notified the public of a job fair the company has scheduled on Monday, Feb. 27, from 4 to 7 p.m., and on Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the former Blumenthal Lansing Company button factory, 1929 Main St., Lansing. Full-time positions available include general labor, machine operators, shipping/receiving clerks, quality technicians and a supervisor.
Positions for a maintenance technician, lead workers and general laborers were published in the Courier Press as recently as last week.
The exact number of positions available has not provided by the company.
