The facility will be located in the Village of Mukwonago WI and will allow the company to consolidate and expand current production operating out of several facilities in the greater Milwaukee area. The plant is anticipated to commence operations in the first quarter of 2020.
“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,” said Jeff Leonard, executive vice president and head of Alamo’s industrial division.
The facility will be approximately 70% larger than the combined capacity of the existing operations, allowing Super Products to consolidate its manufacturing and customer support operations into a single, “highly efficient” location. It also will enable Super Products to bring in house high-value operations that currently are outsourced due to capacity limitations. The site also offers the potential to expand operations to meet future needs.
Since being acquired by Alamo Group in 2014, Super Products 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 GA and Corpus Christi TX and now operates eight rental locations in seven states.
“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,” said Mike Vanden Heuvel, president of Alamo’s Super Products subsidiary.
