Pleasant Prairie-based LMI Packaging plans expansion

LMI Packaging, a Pleasant Prairie-based manufacturer of lids and labels for packaging, is planning to add a 49,327-square-foot addition to its 70,995-square-foot facility at 8911 102nd St. in the LakeView Corporate Park.

The company currently has 155 full-time and 25 part-time employees. That could grow to 200 to 300 full-time employees and 50 to 75 part-time employees with the expansion, according to information submitted by the company to the village.

The company, a third-generation family-owned business, was founded in 1967 in Franklin Park, Illinois and moved to Pleasant Prairie in 1993.

In a letter to village officials, LMI Packaging chief executive officer and owner J.P. Moran said the company has been experiencing significant growth and considered moving to a new location, but instead decided it wants to stay and expand in Pleasant Prairie.
