Fresenius Kabi, a Germany-based global health care company, is establishing a regional distribution center in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. The multimillion-dollar investment is expected to create 95 jobs over the next four years.
The company expects to invest more than $15 million to complete the project. The project includes a 590,000-square-foot facility at Stateline 94 Corporate Park in Pleasant Prairie that will serve as a regional distribution center for Fresenius Kabi’s Midwestern and Southern customers within the U.S.
“As part of a larger U.S. supply chain expansion that Fresenius Kabi is undertaking, the Pleasant Prairie location will serve as our flagship distribution center in the U.S. and allow us to better serve hospitals and other customers in the central part of the country,” said Brian Bulgarelli, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain with Fresenius Kabi USA. “All the supply chain enhancements we are making by being in Wisconsin, as well as South Carolina and Nevada, will support our continued growth.
“Kenosha County is excited to welcome Fresenius Kabi to Wisconsin and we look forward to working with and supporting the global health care company for years to come,” said Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser. “Kenosha County is in a perfect location for innovative companies like Fresenius Kabi to access markets across the country and to access a highly skilled regional workforce.”
“Pleasant Prairie congratulates Fresenius Kabi on its growth,” said Pleasant Prairie Village Administrator Nathan Thiel. “With an incredibly supportive business community, skilled workforce, and great quality of life, we are confident that the company will excel here.”
