50 jobs coming to Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- There's a bit of new hope for people looking for a job in Cedar Rapids.

A company that makes promotional pens and pencils announced plans to open a plant and employ up to 50 people.

Cedar Crest Manufacturing plans to create the jobs, with an average salary of $40,700, over the next three years.

Mark Seckman, president of Priority One, which is the economic development branch of the Cedar Rapids Chamber of Commerce, says Cedar Crest will be a great addition to the local and regional business community.

The project is contingent on formal approval of grants, tax credits and job training assistance through the state and Kirkwood Community College.
