Brookfield-based Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. has been adding new products and new employees at a pace matched by few other firms in the region over the past several years, so it only makes sense the company would add new office space, too.

Employees recently moved into a new 200,000-square-foot expansion at the company’s Brookfield campus. Milwaukee Tool president Steve Richman said the facility is “crucial” to meeting lofty growth goals and it “provides an atmosphere of vision and passion so essential in a fast-paced, innovative environment.”

“The intent is to immerse our employees in an environment reflective of the users they design and develop tools for,” he said.

Milwaukee Tool puts an emphasis on collaboration, so the new facility was designed with plenty of open air creative and cross-functional meeting space, a wide variety of furniture and office space, and natural light from nearly all angles.

The expansion also included updates to the façade of the rest of the Brookfield campus and helped keep the company in its current location.

“This is where our roots took hold and our great heritage has flourished,” Richman said.
