Milwaukee Tool is expanding its facilities in Brookfield to create 128 new jobs.
The expansion of its research and development center will include jobs such as project leaders, design engineers, electrical engineers and technicians, reported the BizTimes.
The company announced its $6 million investment plan with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC), which is helping the expansion with up to $2.1 million in tax credits, according to the BizTimes article.
Milwaukee Tool was founded in 1924, producing heavy-duty electric power tools and accessories for a professional user, according to its website. The company, a subsidiary of Techtronic Industries Co. Ltd., globally employs over 1,000 people.
Ty Staviski, chief financial officer of Milwaukee Tool, told the BizTimes that this is part of their expansion in Southeastern Wisconsin as the company pursues “new products and research opportunities.”
"We are committed to our Brookfield facility as a critical component of delivering solutions to our core end-users and distribution partners with greater innovation and faster speed than any of our competitors,” said Staviski.
Milwaukee Tool has also established a global rotary hammer advanced development center and a motor development and prototyping center. It’s also expanding its accessories product line and introduced a Hand Tool line.
