PRICE COUNTY - The expansion of Northcentral Technical College's Phillips campus helped persuade one manufacturing company to move closer to the campus.
OEM Fabricators will move its Price County facility from Prentice to Phillips.
All 28 employees will also move to the larger shop, which will focus on welding.
The company's president said the tech college's manufacturing expansion factored into the decision.
Northcentral Technical College just opened up 3,000 square feet of classroom space on its Phillips campus.
OEM is based in Woodville.
The company employs more than 400 people, with other Wisconsin locations in Baldwin and Neillsville.
