Kenosha swimming pool supplier, Doheny Enterprises, Inc., is building a 175,000-square-foot office and distribution center in Pleasant Prairie.
The Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission approved preliminary site and operational plans Monday for the company’s new building that will be built on 16.67 acres at the southeast corner of Highway 165 and 80th Avenue in the LakeView Corporate Park.
Approximately 163,000 square feet of the proposed building to be dedicated to warehouse space and 15,000 square feet will be dedicated to office functions. The new building will consolidate warehousing space from three buildings currently located in Kenosha.
The company was established in 1967. Doheny operates ten distribution centers nationwide and has had a presence in Kenosha County for 20 years.
Doheny sells swimming pool supplies to consumers and commercial markets via catalogs, websites, outbound telemarketing, and a local retail pool store.
Approximately 55 full-time and 140 part-time employees are expected to work at the new facility.
Final site and operational plans are expected to be submitted for review later this year, according to the village. Construction is expected to begin this fall with completion scheduled during 2017.
