Caleffi Celebrates Groundbreaking Expansion in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE – Monday, Aug. 21, 2023: Caleffi SpA, a manufacturer specializing in innovative plumbing and hydronic components, proudly announces a facility expansion at its Milwaukee branch. This significant expansion will not only double the warehouse footprint but will also augment the assembly area, adding much needed space for growth.
Chairman Marco Caleffi, along with a distinguished delegation from the Italian headquarters, joined the North America leadership team in celebrating the occasion during a recent groundbreaking ceremony. Their presence underscored the strategic importance of this expansion to both the company’s North American and Italian operations.
"With each step of this expansion, we want our customers to know that we are committed to providing a steady and smooth supply of the most innovative products in the industry," said Mark Olson, General Director and CEO of Caleffi North America.
As a reflection of Caleffi’s dedication to reducing its carbon footprint, the entire facility will harness solar energy, with photovoltaic panels set to provide over 80% of the building’s electricity demands. To minimize electric demand, warehouse lighting fixtures will have individual integral motion sensors. In addition, over 90% of the building’s materials and labor will be regionally sourced.
Born in Italy and flourishing globally, Caleffi’s journey of growth remains a testament to its resilience, adaptability, and vision. This new chapter in Milwaukee is more than just an expansion, it’s a pledge to a sustainable, innovative, and prosperous future.
