Steinhafels to host job fair to hire 50

Pewaukee-based Steinhafels Inc. will host a job fair on Monday, Aug. 24, to fill 50 job openings.

The company recently broke ground on the first of a two-phase, $10 million project to expand its distribution center at its headquarters complex at I-94 and County Highway F. The first phase of the project will add 107,000 square feet of space and the second phase will add another 130,000 square feet of space.

Steinhafels president Gary Steinhafel first revealed plans for the distribution center expansion in a BizTimes Milwaukee cover story last November.

The company plans to eventually add 650 jobs as part of its expansion plans. Steinhafels currently has 750 employees.

For the Aug 24 job fair, Steinhafels said it is looking to fill immediate openings for drivers, assembly specialists, forklift operators and unloaders. The company is also hiring sales associates and decorators at some of its stores. There are also several customer service positions available.

Last year Steinhafels acquired three former American TV & Appliance stores, located in Appleton, Oak Creek and Madison, after American TV announced that it was going out of business. Steinhafels opened a new store in Appleton last year and in Oak Creek earlier this year.
