A new plant in Caledonia that manufactures bricks out of coal fly ash from the We Energies power plant will hold a grand opening on Monday.
Calstar Products is opening its new plant at 2825 Four Mile Road in Racine. The California-based company is producing the first commercially available fly-ash bricks in the country.
The new plant, in the former Young Radiator Building, will employ 15 people to start and up to 25 once orders come in.
Sen. Russ Feingold is scheduled to speak at the company's grand opening on Monday.
