Rockford company announces expansion, addition of jobs

ROCKFORD (WREX) - A Rockford company with decades of history in the area announced it will expand its workforce.

Randy Baker, President of Slidematic Precision Components, said his company is buying property on Sandy Hollow Road to put a new building for manufacturing.

"There is a lot of work that has gone into getting Slidematic to where it is today," said Baker.  "The announcements are an effort of a lifetime of work.  Not only me, but my wife, my two kids and hopefully somewhere down the line my grandkids."

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn visited the facility for the announcement.

Slidematic currently employs 120 people.  Baker said the expansion means another 30 jobs will be created.
