Hartland manufacturer to hire more workers at new headquarters

Midwest Composite Technologies Inc., a Hartland-based manufacturer of composite products, including molds, tooling, models and prototypes, will move to a new 69,000-square-foot facility on June 1.

The new building was funded with $7.2 million in Wisconsin Industrial Revenue Bonds, said Helmut Keidl, president of the company. The company also has purchased about $1 million in new equipment, and the move is expected to create 13 new jobs over the next two years, Keidl said. The company now has 35 workers.

Midwest Composite Technologies is currently based in a 47,000-square-foot facility, also in Hartland. That building has already been sold to a Hartland graphics company that will move in after Midwest Composite Technologies relocates.

"This will allow us to arrange our facility better," Keidl said. "We will get a much better flow (around our machines) and we’ll have higher ceilings. We’ve acquired a lot of unusual equipment and we’ll be able to have some clean areas too."

The company’s capabilities include rapid prototyping, CNC machining, injection molding and three-dimensional design software, Keidl said. For more information, visit www.midwestcomposite.com.
