Weldall Manufacturing Inc., a metal fabricating firm, plans to build a 92,904-square-foot addition to its 99,000-square-foot facility at 2001 S. Prairie Ave., Waukesha. The company also owns 43,500 square feet of space in the building next door.
Weldall has seen strong sales to the mining, construction and power generation industries, said company owner and president Dave Bahl. "I think most metal fabricators are pretty busy," he said. The expansion project is in the planning stages, but construction could begin next year, Bahl said.
The company has 140 employees and will add about 50 to 60 more with the expansion. "We could add 15 more immediately if we could find the right people," Bahl said.
