Milwaukee Tool campus expansion underway

Milwaukee Tool is beginning a major expansion of its global headquarters campus in Brookfield, Wis.

The power tool and accessories manufacturer is investing $32 million in the project, resulting in a new, advanced manufacturing and research and development facility. About 350 new jobs are expected from the project.

This newest expansion will house the company’s advanced manufacturing, engineering, and global research and development center, occupying a 3.5-acre site. The 114,500-square foot, multi-story building starts construction in Q3 and is expected to be completed by Q4 of 2019, bringing its global headquarter space from 390,000 square feet to an approximate 504,500 square feet.

When you look at the growth our company has achieved in the last decade, the catalyst for our success has been, and will always be, our people. The drive, determination, and obsession of our employees has enabled us to continue delivering disruptive innovation for the professional trades and our distribution partners,” said Steve Richman, Milwaukee Tool Group President. “Our newest expansion will help us continue to grow a world-class work environment that will attract, recruit, and retain the best talent in the world.” ​

Milwaukee Tool said it has sustained organic double-digit growth throughout the last decade. Over the past decade, Milwaukee Tool has continued to invest heavily in its national growth, making over $190 million in capital investments in the U.S., including $33.4 million in manufacturing, tripling the workforce at its Wisconsin campus. The company has also continued to grow its base of 3,500 employees nationwide.
