Increasing demand from clients who need help with shipping operations prompted Midwest Assembly, Warehouse and Distribution to seek space to lease from Phoenix Investors in Grafton.
The West Bend company primarily provides third-party logistics services to other firms, and is looking to lease about 56,000 square feet in Grafton for those operations, said Tom Bichanich, Midwest Assembly operations manager. The long-term lease provides more space and would let the company consolidate operations in other leased buildings, he said.
“There’s been an uptick over the last number of years in people needing outside storage and distribution,” he said.
The space is in the former Tecumseh Products Co. engine plant at 900 North St. Phoenix Investors LLC and a partner bought the 341,944-square-foot, shuttered facility in 2016 and has been investing in upgrades and leasing space to new tenants.
