An affiliate of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois-based ND Paper, a manufacturer of paper and paper products, recently purchased the vacant 350,300-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility at 7601 Durand Ave. in Mount Pleasant. The deal is the latest example of Illinois companies either relocating or expanding their operations across the Wisconsin border.
The building was constructed in 1972 and formerly used by Promotions Unlimited, according to village assessment records.

The firm had made major renovations to the building after first acquiring it in January 2018. Renovations included a new roof, tearing out the second-floor mezzanine and adding new offices, installing a new parking lot, updating the front facade, repairing the docks and replacing lighting.
