German gummy maker Haribo announced on Thursday that it will open its first U.S. factory in the Badger State. The Kenosha County plant will create 400 jobs, according to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and is scheduled to open in 2020.

The project marks one of the largest investments from a foreign company in the state’s history, the governor’s office said.

Walker thanked Haribo for choosing his state. “Haribo is a great fit with the many other iconic companies that already call Wisconsin home,” he said, citing the state’s “business-friendly climate and strong fiscal management.”
