Rite-Hite Announces Plans for New World Headquarters

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (March 6, 2020): Global industrial equipment manufacturer and supplier Rite-Hite Holding Corporation announced today that it is in the final stages of diligence on the acquisition of 9.4 acres of land in Milwaukee’s Fifth Ward for construction of its new world headquarters. Reed Street Yards, located at 3rd and Freshwater Way, will bring together all Milwaukee-area Rite-Hite locations, totaling over 300 employees.

“The new headquarters will afford us the space and resources to expand our operations, attract and retain talent, and continue to support our customers in a first class manner” said Sara Everts, Director of Corporate Communications.

The new site will feature a state-of-the-art customer experience center that will host customers from around the world and will also serve as a technical training base for employees, representatives and customers alike. Of particular interest, one of the two office buildings will be equipped with 900+ solar panels to help supply energy to the project. Rite-Hite and Arbon Equipment employees are expected to move in to the buildings in two phases. The first phase will be completed in the summer of 2022 and the second will be in early 2023. Rite-Hite has partnered with Eppstein Uhen Architects and CD Smith Construction on this project.
