Cheesehead maker "Foamation Inc." to relocate to Milwaukee, add jobs

MILWAUKEE -- The maker of the iconic Wisconsin cheesehead hats is moving production to Milwaukee.

The entity Cheesehead Factory LLC applied for a loan from the Milwaukee Economic Development Corp. to buy the 16,000-square-foot building at 1120 S. Barclay St. near Rockwell Automation to expand its operations. The building will house Foamation Inc., which makes the cheesehead hats and other foam hats and products.

The current operation is in St. Francis and 13 full-time and two part-time employees work there.

Owners say the relocation would give them space for eight more full-time and eight more part-time positions over the next two years.
