WEST BEND — A local manufacturer
could expand its West Bend factory after the city’s Plan Commission
on Wednesday green-lighted a few key items tied to the proposed
25,000-square-foot facility addition.
Metalcraft of Mayville is planning to add the space — mainly for
offices and some robotics work — to its factory on the city’s far
south side. James Reinke, West Bend’s business and development
planner, said the company still needs a few more approvals before it
can break ground on construction.
Wednesday’s Plan Commission approvals, though — the board OK’d a
survey map and site plan outlining the expansion — marked some of
the last major steps before work can start.
“It’s been a long-time great corporate citizen in West Bend, and
we’re excited that they’re choosing to expand here,” Mayor Kraig
The addition would add space to the company’s existing
552,000-square-foot building in West Bend’s south-side industrial
park, near the intersection of Progress Drive and Metalcraft Road.
The company, based in Mayville, builds parts for farming, mining,
military and construction industries, among others. Besides West
Bend, the firm operates facilities in Mayville and Beaver Dam.
