Falls Manufacturing Inc. is moving from Butler to Richfield after the company purchased a 37,000-square-foot building in the Helsan Business Park for $1.23 million, according to state real estate records
Falls Manufacturing specializes in industrial welding, fabrication and powder coating. The company has operated for more than 30 years and has 35 employees, said Ben Buehrens, Falls Manufacturing vice president.
The manufacturer leases its current 50,000-square-foot facility at 2440 W. Corporate Preserve Drive in Butler. Buehrens said the company wants to become self-sufficient, adding that a smaller building is a better fit for current operations.
“Downsizing but the workflow in this building will be a lot better,” he said.
Falls Manufacturing purchased the building from Universal Metrics Inc., a Menomonee Falls based metal fabricator. The Richfield facility, located at 3040 Helsan Drive, was assessed at $1.32 million in 2018.
The 72,000-square-foot building sold for $2.34 million to MSJC LLC, which is registered to Steven Krueger, owner of Universal Metrics Inc. The building was assessed at $2.49 million in 2017.
