21 Oct RedPrairie to build new headquarters and partner in new Delafield technology park
Brookfield, Wis. – RedPrairie Corp. has announced plans to build its new headquarters in the Waukesha County community of Delafield as part of a new technology park.
The new headquarters will be built on a site is located south of I-94 and east of Hwy. C. Occupancy is expected to begin in the fall of 2010.
“We have a long standing commitment to this area and are excited about a new Wisconsin-based location,” said Mike Mayoras, CEO of RedPrairie, in a statement released by the company.
Red Prairie, which has been headquartered in Wisconsin since its founding in 1975, will develop the headquarters and the technology park in partnership with RP Technology Development Group, a joint venture that assisted in a new 486,000-square-foot warehouse facility for GE Healthcare.
The company, which is approaching the end of its current lease in the Corporate Crossroads Center in the town of Brookfield, has evaluated several possibilities. Their options included building a new facility in the Park East section of downtown Milwaukee.
The Delafield development will allow RedPrairie to remain close to its current location, which also is along Hwy. I-94, and build a facility to accommodate its growth and change in emphasis.
Following several acquisitions, RedPrairie has made the transition from regional warehouse management to global supply chain and retail store solutions.
Details of the planned development have not been finalized, but the new facility will provide approximately 120,000 square feet of office space and will be the largest of four Phase I buildings.
