WCW to bring new manufacturing facility in Manchester

Governor Shumlin announces the arrival of a new manufacturing company to Bennington County. This will bring over 100 new jobs in Manchester.

Gov. Peter Shumlin announced that a new manufacturing company will be locating in Manchester and will initially employ just over 100 people. The company, WCW, Inc., is a family-owned manufacturer of premier bedding used in the medical and hospitality sectors, with plans to expand to retail customers.

WCW's decision to relocate to Manchester from its Hoosick Falls, N.Y., facilities was based on a combination of incentives, an excellent location and support from the Governor and Vermont economic development officials.

"Vermont did an excellent job of presenting a competitive incentive package and providing assistance to us from the Shumlin administration - including the Governor himself – as well as from the Bennington County Industrial Corporation and local representatives," said WCW chairman John Wilkinson. "My family and I very much look forward to our future in Vermont."

"This is a great day for Bennington County. I am delighted that WCW selected Vermont as its new home," said Gov. Shumlin. "Creating jobs has been a priority of mine, and announcement is further proof that Vermont is a great place to do business."

"It has been a pleasure working with John Wilkinson and his family over the last several months," said Peter Odierna, Executive Director of Bennington County Industrial Corporation. "We look forward to this dynamic addition to our local economy."

Although there are still details to be worked out, WCW will purchase the former Moore-Wallace building in Manchester and begin the transition from Hoosick Falls immediately. The company received initial approval of $522,484 from the Vermont Employment Growth Incentive Program and will submit a final application later this year.
