GRAND CHUTE, Wis. – Werner Electric Supply, a leading electrical supply distributer, held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new 250,000 square foot corporate headquarters and regional distribution center.
“Due to the hard work of our employees and the great partnerships we’ve developed with our vendors and customers, we’ve experienced unprecedented growth,” said Scott Teerlinck, president of Werner Electric Supply. “Our current facility is nearing capacity in both inventory and resources, which impacts our ability to keep up with demand, so we are thrilled to be building our new headquarters and regional distribution center.”
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker attended the groundbreaking to praise Werner Electric Supply for adding nearly 100 jobs to the local economy over the next five years.
“I congratulate and applaud Werner Electric Supply for its commitment to the Fox Valley and Wisconsin with this expansion project, which will create nearly 100 jobs and help continue to grow the state’s economy,” said Governor Walker. “Across the state, we’re seeing more and more companies decide to grow their businesses right here in Wisconsin. That growth means more jobs, which is one of the reasons our state’s labor force is at an all-time high of 2.9 million.”
Set to open in the summer of 2016, the new Werner Electric Supply headquarters and regional distribution center, to be located in the Town of Grand Chute, will allow for the addition of nearly 100 jobs over the next five years.Tagged with tED
