Professional Plating Inc. is beginning a new expansion program at its Brillion, Wisconsin, plant. Work is planned to commence on three separate building expansion projects. The three phases will be done concurrently, and the square footage additions will amount to over 60,000 square feet of new space being added, resulting in a total of 210,000 square feet.
The company also says that there will be a new zinc rack plating system addition that will come online in late summer of 2016. The new building and equipment investment will exceed $7.5 million.
Keller Inc. of Kaukauna, Wisconsin, has been chosen as the design-build partner for this expansion. The Keller Team has provided Professional Plating Inc. with each of its previous four building expansions in the company’s history. Jessup Engineering of Rochester Hills, Michigan, has been chosen to provide the zinc rack plating line.
Professional Plating will also be relocating an existing 10,000-square-foot building from the current location on its Northway Drive Campus to a new location across the street on Northway Drive, and will be modifying that structure and developing it into a stand alone industrial warehouse facility.
Professional Plating employs 190, and with the planned expansion the company expects to add up to 20 new jobs to support the new sales growth at the full maturity of the project.
