Rexnord to move execs, offices to Water Center

Rexnord Corp. will move some of its corporate offices and several of its executives from its West Milwaukee headquarters to the Global Water Center in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood this summer.

The company will occupy a 14,000-square-foot space in the 98,000-square-foot, seven-story building, which aims to bring educational institutions, established businesses and entrepreneurs together for water technology advancement.

Under its new lease, Rexnord will expand its existing presence at the Water Center, with space on two floors. The Water Center’s occupancy will reach 85 percent after the move.

Rexnord’s expansion in the Water Center is “a very significant demonstration of Milwaukee continuing to thrive as a leader in the global water economy,” said Dean Amhaus, president and chief executive officer of The Water Council, the regional cooperative that founded the Water Center. “It is clear that global water technology companies are attracted to the Global Water Center to have firsthand access to entrepreneurs, researchers and students developing new technologies for the freshwater industry.”

Water Center representatives were unsure whether Rexnord would move its entire headquarters to Milwaukee, and Rexnord representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

Rexnord manufactures process and motion control and water management products. It has about 7,300 employees worldwide.
