Here’s some great news.
A well-known business executive with strong ties to Wisconsin is moving his Florida company’s headquarters to Milwaukee, creating management jobs and possibly paving the way for manufacturing here.
Tim Sullivan, the former chief executive of Bucyrus International Inc. (now Caterpillar Inc.’s mining equipment division) said Monday he’s moving REV Group Inc. from Orlando, Fla., to offices in downtown Milwaukee and possibly the suburbs over the next few months.
REV Group is a privately-held manufacturer of ambulances, firetrucks, buses, shuttle vans, motor homes, and other specialty vehicles. It has about $2 billion in annual revenue, 5,700 employees, and 15 factories in Indiana, Michigan, Kansas, New York, North Carolina, Florida and Texas.
