Banker Wire, a manufacturer of woven and welder mesh wire for
architectural and industrial applications, announced Thursday plans
to relocate its Mukwonago-based manufacturing facility. The company
has purchased land in what will be the new Bear Industrial Park,
located along Interstate 43 and Highway 83.
“As we’ve grown
and evolved, we reached a point where we had to decide whether we
should add on to our current facility or build a new one,” said Dave
Stout, president of Banker Wire. “In the end, we decided to push
forward into a new facility.
In 2009, after
acquiring a new building, Banker Wire relocated
from Muskego to its present location in Mukwonago. In 2012, the
company added a 50,000-square-foot addition, expanding the facility
to a total of 152,000 square feet.
Banker Wire has
selected Briohn to oversee the design and construction of its new
182,000-square-foot facility, which is just two miles away from
their current space. The new location will house all Banker Wire
employees and equipment. In addition, a new wire mesh welding
machine will join the fleet of equipment. This welder will be the
widest wire mesh machine in the United States.
