Expanding to Reach New Markets and Customers
Since 2011, Amerequip has invested more than $20 million in facility improvements, most recently expanding its Kiel facility, which doubled its manual and robotic welding capacity. The expansion also doubled the company’s machining and fabrication space, enhancing Amerequip’s final assembly capabilities and allowing the company greater flexibility in reaching new markets. Amerequip’s growth plans include increasing revenue to $150 million by 2025. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation supported Amerequip’s Kiel expansion with nearly $800,000 in performance-based tax credits. The City of Kiel also created a tax incentive district to support the project.
