Milwaukee Tool will expand its footprint in the U.S. with a new vertically integrated manufacturing plant in West Bend, Wisconsin. Located only 20 minutes from Milwaukee Tool’s Global Headquarters, the facility will manufacture new-to-market Hand Tools for professional electricians and utility linemen.
With an initial expected investment of almost $26 million, Milwaukee Tool will break ground in April 2020 on the new manufacturing plant, and expects mass production to begin in early 2021.
Milwaukee Tool currently has manufacturing and distribution operations around the nation in Greenwood, Olive Branch, and Jackson, Mississippi, as well as in Mukwonago and Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Along with the new hand tool manufacturing plant in West Bend, Wisconsin, plans in progress to expand in 2020 include: operations in Cookeville, Tennessee, for power tool manufacturing and assembly; in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, for accessories manufacturing; and in Olive Branch, Mississippi, for a new 766,000-square-foot distribution facility.
