Plexus Corp.’s relocation of employees to its new $50 million manufacturing plant thrills Neenah officials.
About 1,100 Plexus employees and 200 temporary employees will work at the Neenah Operations plant, 2444 Schultz Drive. The employees moved from Neenah 1 and Neenah 2 — two leased facilities on Enterprise Drive — and Appleton 1 in Greenville.
Neenah officials are pleased with Plexus’ decision to build the plant in the Southpark Industrial Center, and they anticipate more big news from Plexus by year-end.
Plexus holds an option on vacant land in front of its global headquarters in downtown Neenah and must decide if it needs the land for another construction project or should relinquish the option so the city can market the land to other developers.
“The hope is that Plexus would move forward with a project,” said Chris Haese, Neenah’s director of community development and assessment. “That would be the best scenario for us.”
