In 2014, Gardner Denver announced it would move its global headquarters from Pennsylvania to Milwaukee. Gardner Denver will place among the 15 largest privately held companies in Wisconsin, and the facility could ultimately employ as many as 200 senior executives, managers and professionals. To help secure the relocation, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation agreed to provide the company with up to $2 million in tax credits through 2020, contingent upon the actual number of jobs created.
