Barely a year after Spartech — once known as “Creative Forming” in Ripon — vacated its property in the Ripon Industrial Park, the building has a new owner and a new purpose.

   Advanced Paper Enterprises (APE), a 10-year-old paper-converting company currently located at 877 N. Stanton St., will move into 100 Creative Way by the end of the year.

   Rogers & Rogers LLC completed the purchase from Spartech LLC last week Thursday to use for APE.

   The facility is located near the north end of the former Ripon Foods property that now is home to Accurate Controls, which is another Rogers family company.
