Construction activities are continuing on A.M. Castle & Co’s 208,000-square-foot build-to-suit industrial buiding in the East Side Business Park in Janesville, Wisconsin.
A.M. Castle, a global distributor of specialty metal and plastic products, is consolidating and relocating two operations, one from Minnesota and another from Illinois into this new Janesville bar-processing facility. When fully operational, Castle expects to have up to 90 full-time employees.
Gilbank Construction, Inc. , is providing the construction services for this project, while Angus Young Associates provided the architectural, design and engineering services. Tenant representation was provided by Fischer & Co., and landlord representation was provided by Bill Mears of Coldwell Banker Commercial McGuire Mears & Associates.
A group of local investors will own and lease the building back to A.M. Castle.
To facilitate this project, financial support was provided by Johnson Bank, the City of Janesville, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and Alliant Energy/WP&L.
