Mukwonago Remodeling has acquired the assets of Cedarburg-based Arcadia Remodeling and Finishing and has opened a new headquarters facility in New Berlin.
The remodeling and cabinet-making company previously was based in a 1,700-square-foot Mukwonago office and showroom, with a 3,500-square-foot cabinet-making facility in Waukesha and the 6,000-square-foot space occupied by Arcadia.
Mukwonago Remodeling, which has about 30 employees, has consolidated its operations into one 17,000-square-foot building at 2450 S. 170th St. in New Berlin. While its showroom is still in Mukwonago, general manager Bob Riemer said he plans to open the New Berlin showroom to replace it this month.
“That’s the main reason we did it, for efficiency,” Riemer said. “A great deal of our business has always been in New Berlin, Brookfield, Elm Grove, Wauwatosa, which this is much more centrally located for our business. This is going to increase our capacity by probably twofold.”
Arcadia had five employees, four of whom came on board with Mukwonago Remodeling, along with equipment, when Mukwonago Remodeling acquired the assets from owner John McHugh. The sale price was undisclosed.
“It was just the fact that we were expanding and a much greater need for both employees and equipment,” Riemer said. “It was what I thought was a reasonable price.”
Riemer plans to hire another six to 12 employees this year to keep up with Mukwonago Remodeling’s growth.
“I think it’s just that we make a good product and we have a good reputation going and we’re going to strive to keep it growing and going,” he said.
Riemer also recently sold Mukwonago Remodeling and handed the president title to John Georgopoulos.
