The company has been approved for a 200,000-square-foot expansion, which is a collaborative effort between the company, the city of Brookfield, Milwaukee 7, and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).
Milwaukee Tool has been a manufacturer of heavy-duty power tools, accessories, and hand tools for professionals worldwide since 1924. They focus on providing innovative, trade-specific solutions for plumbing, mechanical, electrical, HVAC, MRO, and remodeling trades to make them more productive.
“Milwaukee Tool is dedicated to driving growth and creating new jobs in Wisconsin, and throughout the United States,” said Milwaukee Tool Group President Steve Richman. “We firmly believe that, through investing in our people, we will deliver disruptive innovation and the highest quality products to our users and distribution partners.”
Over the last ten years, Milwaukee Tool has redeveloped 190,000 square-feet of former manufacturing space for their global research and development center. As a result, the company has grown from just over 207 jobs in 2008 to 800 jobs in 2016 at its Brookfield campus.
Milwaukee Tool’s new 200,000 square-foot expansion includes a new four-story office building on campus, adjoined to the current facility. Most of these new positions will be focused on research and development in engineering and marketing, with an average salary of $75,000. The proposed expansion will make Milwaukee Tool the largest employer in Brookfield.
