Sedgwick County commissioners voted today to approve a $15,000 forgivable loan for Spartech Corp. in Wichita.
The city of Wichita approved a similar loan last month.
The company plans to expand its business, adding 35,400 square feet of warehouse space and 18 jobs at an average salary of $35,000. It also plans to invest about $7.5 million in new machinery and equipment.
Spartech operates in a 63,000-square-foot facility at 1444 S. Tyler Road. It employs 75 people.
Spartech produces plastic products, such as polymeric compounds, concentrates, custom extruded sheet and rollstock products, and packaging technologies.
It was founded in Wichita in 1964 as Pawnee Plastics. Spartech bought the company in 1994.
