Pressure washer manufacturer FNA Group Inc. announced that it is relocating its corporate headquarters from Elk Grove Village, Ill., to Pleasant Prairie.
The headquarters will be located in a 176,000-square-foot industrial facility in the LakeView Corporate Park. The facility, which opened earlier this year, will also serve as a manufacturing and distribution facility. At least 165 jobs are expected to be created, according to the company.
“All of us at FNA Group are impressed by the manner in which state and local officials worked independently and together from day one,” said Gus Alexander, president and chief executive officer of FNA Group and OEM Solutions. “They did everything within their power to help us solve our challenges. And we are all extremely proud to call Pleasant Prairie our new home.”
According to FNA spokesman Jack Pariseau, Pleasant Prairie was selected as the new corporate headquarters site because FNA needed to expand its facilities.
“Pleasant Prairie allows us a great opportunity for controlled growth over the next several years,” he said.
In addition to jobs, Pariseau said FNA’s move to Pleasant Prairie will result in “spending with local vendors.”
In December, FNA announced it was locating part of its OEM Industries Division operations, which manufactures hoses and distributes pumps and replacement parts, from Arkansas to Pleasant Prairie. The company selected Wisconsin after taking part in a site selection process that involved numerous states.
