Bo/Gar Enterprises Opens New Facility in Wyoming, Illinois and looks to hire 20 plus new employees!
Wyoming, IL (January 25, 2022) – Bo/Gar Enterprises in Wyoming, Illinois is excited to announce the opening of their second facility in Wyoming, Illinois. The property, previously purchased as a storage facility in 2020, will now house an in-house fabrication shop complete with a new laser welder and brake press.
With the new addition comes an increased need for new employees. Bo/Gar is looking to hire upwards of 20 new employees immediately to fill staffing needs in the facility and in the main shop.
President Jon Knoblauch said, “We are very happy to be growing in Stark County! We have expanded our current facility four times now. With the increase in business we have experienced over the past few years we have been bursting at the seams! The increased space that Division 2 opens up will allow us to keep up with our customers’ demands while also looking to attract new customers.”
The business structure at Bo/Gar was complex assembly work along with Precision CNC Machining. With assemblies, the company was purchasing a large variety of weldments and fabrications. When work slowed down in 2020 due to the pandemic, the company looked for ways to save money and keep the employees busy. One thing they did was break down parts they were purchasing and bring them in-house for welding only. This new process spawned the idea of starting a new division.
Bo/Gar started to look through all of the parts they were purchasing and looked for ways to make their own rather than purchasing them elsewhere.
Knoblauch stated, “After seeing how much money we could save in the long run, as well as the potential for future sales, we immediately started the remodel. We poured new concrete pads for the new equipment and ordered a laser that we received in September of 2021. The brake press was the last piece of the puzzle and we just installed that last week. So, we have officially started making our own fabrications!”
Potential employees are encouraged to visit the company website: www.bogarenterprises.com or stop in at the main office (401 S. Main in Wyoming) to fill out an application and discuss employment opportunities.
