Located only 20 minutes from Milwaukee’s global R&D headquarters in Brookfield, the 95,000-square-foot facility will manufacture new, innovative hand tools for the electrical, power utility, plumbing and mechanical trades. The company has invested $55 million to build and equip this facility with advanced technology and equipment, Milwaukee Tool said.

“This state-of-the-art facility, and the people who work here, will play a critical role in delivering the next wave of hand tool innovation to the industry,” said Tim Albrecht, president of Hand Tools, Storage & PPE for Milwaukee Tool. “Wisconsin has been our company’s home for nearly 100 years — we’re thrilled to continue our growth here where we’ve been able to recruit some of the best talent in the country.”

The opening of the facility is the first development in the city of West Bend’s newest 216-acre industrial park, West Bend Manufacturing Center, and will create 150 jobs in the area, according to a news release

“We are proud to welcome Milwaukee Tool to the city of West Bend,” said West Bend City Administrator Jay Shambeau. “Milwaukee Tool’s investment brings high-value employment opportunities, and we look forward to its further expansion in West Bend.”
