ACS will purchase a former police department building for its expanding operation. The company is making the move not only because it is out of space in its current facility, but also because its owners intend to diversify their base of business. Time Warner is its only current customer.
The police department building, at 17165 W. Glendale Dr. in New Berlin, sits on a 1.94-acre lot that is entirely paved for parking, has an underground garage that is suitable for vehicle maintenance, and which has 20,650 square feet of combined garage, warehouse and office space. There is also a communication and dispatch tower that the company can utilize.
ACS, which currently employs 57 people full time, expects to hire 40 new employees. Firstar Bank is participating in the project’s $770,000 total cost.
