K&K Screw will move to larger plant in Kenosha County

Carol Stream, Ill.-based K&K Screw Products LLC will move its plant in Bristol to Pleasant Prairie in October. The company, which manufactures precision products using screw machines, has outgrown the 25,000-square-foot facility that it leases at 19610 86th St. in Bristol, said Todd Joynt, plant manager. The plant’s operations will be moved to an 82,000-square-foot spec industrial building at 10790 Green Bay Road, in the Lakeview Corporate Park in Pleasant Prairie. The building was developed by Milwaukee-based Towne Investments. The construction was completed in March. K&K will use the facility for manufacturing and will add distribution operations there, Joynt said. The company has 52 employees in Bristol and will increase that to about 65 in the new facility, he said. Eventually the company plans to have about 100 employees in the Pleasant Prairie facility, he said. The Pleasant Prairie is just one of several spec industrial buildings that Towne Investments has built in the Kenosha area, taking advantage of continued growth in the I-94 corridor between Chicago and Milwaukee.
