Viking Masek Global Packaging Technologies is doubling the size of its Oostburg facility to accommodate ongoing growth and increase production capabilities.
The company will begin construction at its U.S. Headquarters, 40 Woodland Court, Tuesday, adding 18,000-square-feet and 17 new offices. Once construction is complete at the end of 2015, the total square footage of the building will be 52,000-square-feet.
Sheboygan-based Quasius Construction, Inc. is handling the project.
Viking was founded in the mid-1990s by Rick Leonhard, president and is also co-owned by Robb Leonhard, vice president, RC Huhn, chief financial officer and Scott Miller, operations manager.
The four partners formed an exclusive partnership with Masek of the Czech Republic in the mid-2000s, leading to the formation of Viking Masek Global Packaging Technologies.
The company currently has 45 employees, but plans to hire more once construction is complete, said Danielle Ohl, sales and marketing coordinator.
