Vonco is proud of its 60-year history throughout which it has made its employees a top priority. A key reason for the company’s relocation is to provide its employees with a better working environment. The company strives to be an employer of choice and offers many advantages for its employees including a bonus program, ongoing incentives for exceptional performance and promotions from within.

At the new facility, state of the art equipment will be installed including printing presses, pouch lines and clean room manufacturing. It will be equipped with climate control for all seasons including air conditioning and humidification. The employee dining areas are restaurant quality and the office area is designed to promote a team-based environment and collaborative approach to serving our customers. Vonco is looking for employees that are ready to grow with us!

Vonco announced in October that it is relocating its operations from Lake Villa, Illinois to Kenosha County. The new facility will allow them to operate more efficiently and increase overall capacity. The company expects to invest more than $4 million in equipment at the facility and create 86 jobs over the next three years.

Vonco will be the anchor tenant of a new business park being collaboratively developed by the Kenosha Area Business Alliance (KABA), the Village of Salem Lakes and Kenosha County. Vonco is leasing the building from KABA and will have an option to purchase the facility. The Town of Salem Lakes created a tax increment financing district to support the Salem Business Park development.
