Wisconsin Oven Corp., a subsidiary of Pennsylvania-based Thermal Product Solutions, is expanding and adding jobs in East Troy, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. said.

Wisconsin Oven, an industrial oven manufacturer, is adding 80 to 90 full-time jobs, bringing the total number of employees at its East Troy campus to more than 215.

Thermal Product Solutions (TPS) also has purchased a vacant building at 2061 Young St. in East Troy, and is planning to invest $1.5 million in renovation and equipment at the facility. The new facility will accommodate its Blue M laboratory oven product line and provide additional manufacturing space for expanding operations.

Dave Strand, president of TPS, said the hiring will take place between 2017 and 2019.

The WEDC is providing the company with up to $500,000 in performance-based business development tax credits through 2020.

TPS purchased Wisconsin Oven in 2015. The company was established in 1973.

TPS is an industrial oven and environmental chamber manufacturer that is based in New Columbia, Pa., with manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania, Michigan, California and Wisconsin.
