Gearbox Express, a Mukwonago-based business that rebuilds gearboxes for wind turbines, plans to move to a 75,000-square-foot industrial building that will be built southwest of Highway 83 and East Wolf Run in the village.
The building will be built by Madison-based Sara Investment Real Estate and will be leased by Gearbox Express.
Gearbox Express currently occupies a 43,000-square-foot building at 909 Perkins Dr. in Mukwonago. The company was started in 2012.
“We’re growing like crazy,” said chief executive officer Bruce Neumiller. The company currently has 19 employees and plans to add another 8 to 10 in employees within the next year, he said.
Construction of the new building is expected to begin soon and be completed in nine to 12 months, Neumiller said.
The Gearbox Express building will be built on a 10-acre site in a 45-acre industrial park that is being created near I-43 in Mukwonago.
“We have a lot of interest in that area,” said village planner Bruce Kaniewski. “We are in an advantageous position. We have the land. We’re right along the interstate.”
