Malcolm Drilling has purchased 9.6 acres of vacant land in the village of Mukwonago where it plans to construct a new facility.

According to state records, John Malcolm, chief executive officer of San Francisco-based Malcolm Drilling, purchased the land recently from the village for $1.05 million. The land is located at the end of Tower Court on the western side Highway 83, in Mukwonago’s 115-acre industrial park.

The specialty foundation contractor, which currently has a facility in the village of Wales, plans to build in Mukwonago a nearly 19,000-square-foot industrial building that could potentially expand to more than 23,800 square feet, according to plans filed with the village earlier this summer.

The building will be used for administrative offices, storage, equipment repair and staging, and related operations. The company may also construct three accessory buildings at the site in the future.
