Global Power Components planning expansion, jobs in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Global Power Components plans to move from its West Allis facility to a building in Milwaukee that previously housed operations for The Oilgear Company.
The company manufactures generator accessories for the power generation market, including tanks, trailers and large enclosure packages.
Hyrule LLC and BHP, Inc., doing business as Global Power Components, are seeking help from the state Public Finance Authority to issue up to $8.3 million in bonds for the acquisition, expansion and equipping of land and buildings at 2300 S. 51st St.
The plan now is to buy the Oilgear building, which has 250,000 square feet of space currently and add about 40,000 square feet. The company could then add up to additional 150,000 square feet in phases in the future.
Global Power currently has around 185 employees and the company plans to add more in the future. Chief executive and owner, Anthony McIntosh, said the company has both high-paying blue collar jobs and a number of engineers on staff. In particular, he said the company is unique in that it draws on all engineering disciplines. Check for Global Power Components jobs here.
