Ad-Tech Medical Instrument Corp. is planning to move its 15,000-square-foot headquarters from Racine to a 35,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility in Oak Creek’s Oakview Business Park.
The company anticipates moving into the new building, which will sit on approximately five acres, by spring 2017, according to chief operating officer Lisa Theama. She said the foundation is planned to be laid this year, but construction is slated to begin in spring 2016.
“We’re growing,” she said of the need to move. “We’ve grown out of our current facility. We manufacture electrodes for brain mapping and epilepsy surgery, and we’re one of three U.S. suppliers of these products. Business is doing well.”
Ad-Tech currently has approximately 100 employees and about 20 temporary employees. Theama said the company is continuing to hire lab personnel to manufacture the products, and it is currently looking to hire an international sales person who would work out of the new facility.
Groth Design Group out of Cedarburg and Rossi Construction from Racine are the contractors for the new building.
Ad-Tech has been located in its current facility at 1901 William Street in Racine for more than 30 years.
