MILTON — A growing plastics manufacturer that says it looks to expand in Milton and create hundreds of new local jobs got a $5.6 million boost Wednesday from Wisconsin’s top economic development agency.

In a deal announced Wednesday by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Milton’s Charter Next Generation and the company’s four other Wisconsin operations would benefit from $5.6 million in “performance-based” tax credits based in part for the company’s expansion now underway in Milton’s Crossroads Business Park.

The award comes as Charter Next Generation already has broken ground on a facility that within the next decade could become a 500,000-square-foot manufacturing expansion in the city’s main business park.
