Kemper Corp., a manufacturer of cargo securement products, is investing $1.9 million in production operations it plans to open in Union. The project is expected to create 28 new jobs.

Located at 100 Times Blvd.  in Union, the company's newly-renovated, 18,000-square-foot production facility is expected to come online in the third quarter of 2018, according to a news release.

"Kemper Corp. is delighted to be relocating to a business-friendly environment where we feel our small business can have a positive impact on the community,” said Cathy Harter, Kemper Corp. president, in the release. “We are appreciative of the efforts by all involved in this relocation."

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved job development credits related to the project.

"We are very excited about Kemper Corp. deciding to relocate their operation to Union County. This reinforces that Union County is a great place to own and operate a business,” said Union County Supervisor Frank Hart.
