The business manufactures a wide range of AC variable frequency drives and controls that reduce energy consumption in buildings and industrial applications in the U.S. market. Currently, the business is divided between two smaller, separate campuses in New Berlin and Wauwatosa. The new campus will include 220,000 sq ft of manufacturing space and support offices in addition to a connected 315,000-sq-ft distribution center. The consolidation of all operations to one campus will add additional efficiencies and reduce overall time to deliver.
