Our downtown redevelopment momentum continues, wih the announcement today that the former Bucyrus campus has landed it first major tenant: Steele Solutions.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story …
White Plains, New York-based Reich Brothers LLC is redeveloping the 27-acre former Bucyrus property. It contains over 750,000 square feet of industrial and office space within seven buildings.
Steele Solutions makes mezzanines and catwalks and is expanding operations to South Milwaukee. It is based in Franklin and also has a Milwaukee facility.
“South Milwaukee has always been a hub for heavy manufacturing, and we look forward to helping keep that tradition alive,” said Chief Executive Officer Kevin O’Neill.
“Adding the Big Muskie building to our other two local fabrication plants will help us keep up with the rapid growth our customers are experiencing,” he said in a statement.
Here is my full statement: “This is great news for South Milwaukee. It’s exciting to see new life, and new jobs, come to the former Bucyrus campus in the heart of our city, and build on our manufacturing legacy. Steele Solutions is not alone in deciding to grow in South Milwaukee. So many good things are happening across our city these days, especially downtown, and I’m so happy to see them choose to write another chapter in that unfolding story.”
