An affiliate of Uline Inc. recently purchased a 7.1-acre property near its corporate headquarters in Pleasant Prairie, according to state records.
The Uline affiliate, Route 165 LLC, bought the property, located southeast of county Highway Q and county Highway U at 13525 104th St., Bristol, from Joseph and Laura Paukner for $1.05 million, according to state records.
In 2010 Uline, a distributor of shipping and packaging materials, moved its corporate headquarters from Illinois to a new corporate campus that it built in Pleasant Prairie. That campus includes a 1-million-square-foot warehouse and a 200,000-square-foot office building on a 200-acre site southwest of I-94 and county Highway Q.
The acquisition of the Paukner property allows Uline to “square off” its headquarters property, said spokesman Phil Hunt.
“They wanted to sell, we we wanted to buy,” he said.
The company’s master plans for its headquarters site includes plans for another warehouse, village administrator Mike Pollocoff said. Plans approved by the village would allow Uline to build another 1-million-square-foot warehouse at its headquarters site, Pollocoff said.
The company has no immediate plans to build that facility and is updating its master plan for its headquarters site, Hunt said.
