Applied Material Solutions opening manufacturing facility, hiring 147 in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Wis. — Elkhorn-based Applied Material Solutions Inc. has purchased a new facility in Burlington and plans to hire 147 employees there.

The company, which manufactures anti-foam and defoaming products, chose a 124,000-square-foot facility at 1956 S. Pine St. in Burlington, where it is investing almost $3.7 million in renovations.

AMS previously operated as Power Works Inc., which made legacy products from AMS owner Jim Athans’ company, lubricant and grease manufacturer Chemtool Inc. Chemtool had 500 employees at locations across the globe when it was acquired by Lubrizol/Berkshire Hathaway in September 2013.

AMS currently has its headquarters in Elkhorn and a manufacturing plant in Bristol. The company plans to retain those facilities and its existing employees at their respective workplaces. As of the end of 2015, AMS had eight employees in Bristol and 15 in Elkhorn.
