Sub-zero investment

Sub-Zero Group intends to invest more than $140 million to build a 400,000-square-foot plant in Cedar Rapids. The factory would create 192 jobs; 127 of those positions would be paid at or above the qualifying wage of $24.20 per hour.

Sub-Zero, based in Madison, Wisconsin, makes its flagship brand of refrigeration products as well as Wolf cooking appliances and Cove dishwashers. The Cedar Rapids plant would bolster the company’s overall manufacturing capacity; it currently operates factories in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, and Goodyear, Arizona.

State officials approved an incentive package worth $3.7 million to support the project
