Super Products LLC is a leading manufacturer of vacuum trucks for a variety of municipal and contractor applications. In 2018, local leadership at Super Products began the search for shovel-ready sites that could accommodate its need for a large industrial building to include headquarters offices, as well as a plant to consolidate several area facilities.
In June of 2018, the Center for Growth began assisting the leadership team to understand where current employees lived and what impact that would have on the new location. The Center for Growth advised Super Products on available sites in Waukesha County and discussed sources for additional labor force needed for future growth.
Super Products looked closely at options to build in a cost-effective manner, as earlier proposals for a new facility had exceeded budget. The Center for Growth assisted the management team as they considered options and recommended an owner’s representative to oversee construction.
As an active partner with the WCCG, the Village of Mukwonago made a strong commitment to its new industrial park just south of I-43 on State Highway 83 in the Village. After surveying employees, Super Products became confident they would respond well to a Mukwonago location.
In April of 2019, Super Products broke ground on a new 171,000-square-foot facility with an estimated value of $15 million. With Briohn Building as the design/build contractor for the new facility, Super Products will move 110 current employees to the new location and anticipates growth of 40 additional jobs.
As a result of providing improved business park sites, Mukwonago continues to retain existing companies and attract new industrial development.
