Milwaukee Tool moves forward with proposed expansion, creating over 350 new jobs

BROOKFIELD -- Milwaukee Tool announced on Thursday, May 3 that a major expansion of a new product development center in Brookfield is moving forward after approval by City of Brookfield officials.

A news release indicates a 114,500 square foot, multi-story building would be built on an existing 3.5 acre lot owned by Milwaukee Tool, bringing the company’s global headquarter space from 390,000 square feet, to a proposed total of 504,500 square feet.

This latest expansion will apparently lead to the creation of 350 additional new jobs in the next 5 years.
