Komatsu to Build New HQ in Milwaukee


In a huge boost to Milwaukee’s redeveloping Harbor District, Komatsu Mining Corp. will create a new corporate campus on a desolate former industrial site — with around 1,000 jobs that include 600 local employees who will move there.

Komatsu’s future $285 million development will house manufacturing operations now based at 4400 W. National Ave., West Milwaukee, as well as corporate offices at Honey Creek Corporate Center, 135 S. 84th St., on Milwaukee’s far west side.

They will move by 2022 to a 60-acre site overlooking the inner harbor at the end of East Greenfield Avenue, it was announced Thursday by company executives and state and local officials.

It’s the largest development site in the Harbor District, where work is underway to convert vacant lots and underused buildings into a hub of industrial jobs, housing, retail space and other new uses.

    There has been a lot of local investment and growth in that area in the past few years. I hope this fits with those that have grown there. I think manufacturing has changed a lot in the last 115 years, but it’s likely to still be noisy and smelly at times.

    Liberals will probably spit on this job development as well.
