County Loan Would Help With Alliance Laundry Systems Expansion

Fond du Lac County supervisors tonight will be asked to approve a three-party agreement that would loan Alliance Laundry Systems of Ripon up to $6 million for another major expansion. The agreement would be between the County, Alliance Laundry Systems and the Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation. The cost of the project is $46 million and would add 150 jobs to the company. The loan would have to be paid back in eight years and would include credits for job creation. Alliance last year completed a $25 million expansion, which created an additional 270 jobs. The County Board meets at 7 p.m. at the City-County Government Center in Fond du Lac.
