Viking Masek, a leading manufacturer in the packaging industry, started a $4 million expansion of its U.S. headquarters in Oostburg, Wisconsin.
The major campus expansion will add approximately 33,000 sq ft. to the headquarters facility, increasing its total footprint by over 60 percent to 91,000 sq ft. Expected to be completed by next July, the project will add warehouse and production space plus office areas including 36+ new workspaces.
“This business expansion is a natural progression for our company,” said Robb Leonhard, Viking Masek co-owner and Executive Vice President. “It increases our ability to better provide innovative and automated packaging lines from tote to pallet."
The company, which has European headquarters in the Czech Republic, expanded its U.S. facility twice before, in 2015 and 2016. According to company officials another addition to its US headquarters was always a part of Viking Masek's long-term plan.
We've reached a critical point where we need to maximize our space to keep exceeding our productivity goals and provide space for our growing workforce to succeed," said Ty Weinhold, Viking Masek COO.
