Those include Vonco Products, a specialty packaging company, and Advent Tool & Manufacturing, which announced it will move from Antioch, Ill.

By January, Stabio North America should complete a new industrial building in the business park with 110,500 square feet of space. The company, now headquartered in Bristol, specializes in producing cold-formed parts.

Designed to accommodate product flow, the building will feature 24-foot ceilings, a centrally located engineering hub and the addition of a state-of-the art Waterjet machine.

The initial building footprint will be 61,794 square feet, but the site can accommodate an additional 53,275 square feet. The project represents an investment of approximately $6 million and will bring nearly 60 jobs to Kenosha County.

R+D works with clients in medical, pharmaceutical, consumer goods and biotechnology industries. Its capabilities include building custom fixtures and prototypes to fully automated and integrated systems.

The location provides R+D with up to 100,000 square feet for future expansion, including additional room for expanded parking, docking and shipping set-up.

U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil, R-Wis., was one of several speakers who touted the southeastern Wisconsin workforce as a reason why companies like R+D choose to relocate here.
