Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

According to a report this past month by BizTimes Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wis., USA), WestRock (Richmond, Va.,) has leased what could become a 100,000-sq.-ft. facility in Germantown and plans to use it to replace a warehouse in Milwaukee.

The company already operates a facility at 11900 River Lane in Germantown and will now lease another facility at N117 W18456 Fulton Drive.

The Fulton Drive facility is currently 67,200 sq.-ft., but the Germantown Plan Commission in July approved plans for an addition. The plans call for the addition of 33,600 sq.-ft. to the facility, which is located on 5.9 acres in the Germantown Industrial Park.

WestRock operates a number of other Wisconsin facilities located in Beloit, Adams, Neenah, Jackson, and Milwaukee. Chris Augustine, WestRock director of corporate communications, said the new Germantown facility would replace the Milwaukee operation at 2800 W. Custer Ave.

A determination on what the company would do with the Milwaukee facility had not been made, Augustine said. The company also operates a sheet feeder plant at 9400 W. Heather Ave. in the city.

Documents filed with the village of Germantown said the Fulton Drive facility would not have more than 10 employees.
