Chippewa Falls business plans a move to Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A Chippewa falls business announces plans to pack up and move, bringing jobs to Eau Claire.

Riverside Machine and Engineering in Chippewa Falls plans to move their business into part of the Hutchinson Technology building in Eau Claire. Part of the building has been vacant since some HTI operations were moved overseas.

"They would move all of their operation from Chippewa falls to Eau Claire," said Eau Claire Economic Development Administrator, Mike Schatz. "They would be bringing 71 existing jobs and creating 33 new jobs over the next five years."

Riverside is purchasing a 150-thousand square foot portion of the building. No word on when the company will move in.
