Komatsu statement on South Harbor Campus approval
"With a focus on sustainability, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and community harbor space, we are ready to continue to grow Komatsu’s Milwaukee story for decades to come."
MILWAUKEE, WI (Dec.18, 2018) — Komatsu today announced it is excited to be moving forward, with City of Milwaukee approval, its plans for a new manufacturing and headquarters campus to be built in the Harbor District.
“Thank you to all the state, city, and community stakeholders who have worked with us to get this project to its current stage,” said John Koetz, president of surface mining at Komatsu Mining Corp. “We are grateful to WE Energies for their leadership in remediating the site for new use – cleaning up a brownfield that has remained vacant for many years. We look forward to continuing to work with the local representatives, city staff, community leaders, the Harbor District, and surrounding neighborhoods to make this a winning development for Milwaukee and Komatsu. With a focus on sustainability, state-of-the-art manufacturing, and community harbor space, we are ready to continue to grow Komatsu’s Milwaukee story for decades to come.”
The company aims to have the project’s design team, general contractor and inclusion firms selected in the first quarter of 2019. Construction start is projected for late 2019.
