The Topeka, Kansas based company is expanding its Winston County factory investing 150-thousand dollars and creating 30 new jobs.  Karla Clem, President and CEO says “We have received news in recent days of even more contracts that we’re winning so we’re excited about.  We’re excited about the jobs it’s going to bring.”

Polo Custom Products shared its excitement with state and local leaders Monday.  The custom manufacturing company makes a lot of products including a new one for our American troops.  Clem says, “A chemical patient wrap for the warfighter used to protect them from chemical agents on the battlefield.”

News of thirty jobs also gives the city of Louisville an economic shot in the arm.
