​Newell Rubbermaid to Expand Winfield Operations, Add 320 Jobs

WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) — Newell Rubbermaid is planning a $27 million expansion of the company's plant in Winfield and will add 320 jobs. Company officials announced Monday the expansion will occur during the next three years. It will allow the plant to increase manufacturing of food storage products and add manufacturing and distribution of some other Rubbermaid products. Newell Rubbermaid has operated its plant in Winfield since it acquired Gott Manufacturing in 1986. The company invested more than $26 million in the plant, including adding a distribution plant, in 2012. It is the largest employer in Winfield.
