The Webster City manufacturer known as Vantec, Incorporated, is being awarded a business contract from an Australian company, Atlantis Water Management.
The Atlantis firm was looking for a plastic injection molder to produce its components for North America. Atlantis Water Management is a firm that focuses on rainwater and storm water harvesting, roof gardens, vertical gardens and on horizontal and vertical drainage systems.
Sherri Hotzler, of Vantec, says the Webster City firm was one of only a handful of plastic injection molders visited after Atlantis’ initial rounds of possible molder and bid packages with the local company thrilled to be chosen.
Officials at Vantec do not know how many jobs will be created at this time but hopes to be able to bring some people back to work in the near future. Vantec has been in operation in Webster City since 1983.
