Lake County Company Adding Jobs

Share this post

A Lake County company is growing. MonoSol LLC out of Merrillville has announced plans to add one-hundred workers over the next year to year-and-a-half, on the manufacturing side mostly, but also scientists and engineers, and marketing, sales and administrative positions. The company makes film that dissolves in water, as seen, for instance, on cleaning products placed in washing and dishwashing machines. Company officials say they're currently expanding in La Porte, and site selection is underway, with plans to announce groundbreaking for their next manufacturing site early next year. They also have locations in Portage, Indiana, and the UK. 
MonoSol also says they're investing significantly in developing next generation film delivery systems for food, feed and personal care applications. Their Vivos® Edible Delivery System, for instance, is engineered to create individual delivery systems, like pouches, that disappear and release their contents when exposed to hot or cold liquids.  The dissolved film, transparent, odorless and tasteless, and made of a proprietary blend of food-grade ingredients, could then be safely consumed along with the food, company officials say.
