A leader in the design, manufacture, distribution and service of high quality equipment for infrastructure maintenance, agriculture and other applications, Alamo Group Inc. approved plans to build a new $15 million facility for its Super Products vacuum trucks operation in the Village of Mukwonago, Wisconsin.
According to company officials the project will allow the company to consolidate and expand current production which operates out of several facilities in the greater Milwaukee area. The plant is anticipated to commence operations in the first quarter of 2020.
The facility will be approximately 70% larger than the combined capacity of the existing operations and will allow Super Products to consolidate its manufacturing and customer support operations into a single, highly efficient location. It will also enable Super Products to bring in house high value operations that are currently outsourced due to capacity limitations.
Jeff Leonard, Executive Vice President and head of Alamo Group's Industrial Division commented, "We are pleased to get this project underway, as it has been one of our objectives since we acquired Super Products and is consistent with Alamo's overall goal of having fewer but bigger facilities."
Mike Vanden Heuvel, President of Alamo's Super Products subsidiary added, "This new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will allow us to achieve greater operational efficiency and meet our growth targets in both the municipal sector and our own vacuum truck rental operations."
The site also offers the potential to expand operations to meet future needs. Since being acquired by Alamo Group in 2014, Super Products said it has grown steadily, in part by expanding its network of vacuum truck rental stores to serve a wider geographic market. In 2018, Super Products opened two new rental locations in Savannah, Georgia and Corpus Christi, Texas and now operates eight rental locations in seven states. The additional capacity provided by the larger facility will allow Super Products to continue its growth in the coming years.
