The Cytec Industries expansion project will be the subject of a public hearing November 4th before the Winona City Council.
Lucy McMartin, Director of Economic Development, says the council will be asked to approve a Minnesota Investment Fund loan that would allow Cytec to expand it's current business in Winona.
McMartin says it's expected the expansion would start in December and would largely involve renovation within the footprint of the existing building at 501 W 3rd St. It's unknown how long the renovation would last.
Cytec has been in Winona for many years and is a premier global supplier of composite materials for the commercial and military aerospace markets.
McMartin says the $12,000,000 expansion would add 60 to 70 full-time jobs and she says it's great news for Winona.
