Wahl Clipper Plans To Expand In Sterling

Posted: Updated:

A long-time employer in northwestern Illinois is expanding. Wahl Clipper announced Thursday that it will build a new corporate headquarters in Sterling. The company will invest nearly $8.5 million to build a 40,000 square foot building with help from the state in the form of a tax credit.

Wahl has promised to create at least five jobs and retain its current 114 headquarters staff positions. In return, the company will get to reduce its Illinois income tax liability.

The 95-year-old company makes personal care and grooming devices and employs nearly 900 employees in Sterling -- 2,000 worldwide. The new building will free up space for manufacturing and help meet growing global demand for its products. Construction will start this spring with the building expected to be completed by the end of the year.
