    S.C. Johnson and Son Incorporated announced it will invest $50 million to $80 million in its global headquarters in Racine and move 175 jobs to Chicago within the next year or two.

    Senior vice president of global corporate affairs Kelly Semrau says the construction project is expected to start next spring and be finished in about two years. And the company says locating some jobs in Chicago will help expand the company's talent pool so it can remain competitive. No jobs will be eliminated.

    S.C. Johnson, a maker of household products, has about 13,000 employees worldwide, including 2,250 in the Racine area.

    The company is known for manufacturing products under brands including Pledge, Raid, Scrubbing Bubbles, Windex and Ziploc.
