Alamo Group has announced plans to build a new $15 million facility for its Super Products vacuum trucks operation.

The facility will be located in Mukwonago, Wisconsin, and will allow the company to consolidate and expand current production that operates out of several facilities in the greater Milwaukee area. The plant is anticipated to begin operations in the first quarter of 2020.

The facility will be about 70 percent larger than the combined capacity of the existing operations and will allow Super Products to consolidate manufacturing and customer support operations into a single, highly efficient location. It will also enable Super Products to bring in-house high-value operations that are currently outsourced due to capacity limitations. The site also offers the potential to expand operations to meet future needs.

Since being acquired by Alamo Group in 2014, Super Products has grown steadily, in part by expanding its network of vacuum truck rental stores to serve a wider geographic market. In 2018, Super Products opened two new rental locations in Savannah, Georgia, and Corpus Christi, Texas, and now operates eight rental locations in seven states. The additional capacity provided by the larger facility in Wisconsin will allow Super Products to continue its growth in the coming years. 

“We are pleased to get this project underway, as it has been one of our objectives since we acquired Super Products and is consistent with Alamo’s overall goal of having fewer but bigger facilities,” says Jeff Leonard, executive vice president and head of Alamo Group’s Industrial Division.

“This new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will allow us to achieve greater operational efficiency and meet our growth targets in both the municipal and industrial sectors, and our own vacuum truck rental operations,” adds Mike Vanden Heuvel, president of Alamo’s Super Products subsidiary.
