Equipment and Services for Senior Living Communities

Direct Supply is the nation’s leading supplier of equipment and service solutions to senior-living communities. The company recently announced a major expansion of its global headquarters in Milwaukee.

Strong Support for a Major Expansion

The expansion is expected to create more than 800 jobs over the next seven years, and was supported by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s Enterprise Zone Tax Credit Program, which will give the company up to $22.5 million in performance-based tax credits through 2023. The City of Milwaukee has also been extensively involved in the project by providing real estate, zoning, and tax incremental direct support. To accommodate the expansion, the city agreed to vacate a street and committed to relocate a large public works yard.
