MILWAUKEE – It’s a move United Tool owner
Ron Kelnhofer wishes he could have made six months ago because his
company has far outgrown its Milwaukee facility. During the second
week of August, United Tool will move from a 12,800-square-foot
8219 W. Bradley Road to an approximate
27,000-square-foot facility at
N27-W23591 Paul Road in the City of Pewaukee.
“It is a real nice bit of room for us,” Kelnhofer said. “We are
sardines where we are now.”
Kelnhofer said he first looked for a facility in Milwaukee, and
tried to buy the building next door, but when nothing worked out, he
expanded his search to Waukesha County.
With the company’s recent growth, a much larger space was needed.
“I found that building on Paul Road; it’s almost perfect,” Kelnhofer
Many of United Tool’s 33 employees are from Waukesha County,
including Kelnhofer who is a Town of Brookfield resident.
“Most of my employees are driving in from that area to Milwaukee,”
he said. “Most of them are really thrilled out there, closer.”
Kelnhofer said another plus of being located in Waukesha County is
the better talent pool than Milwaukee.
