KI will break ground later this week in Green Bay on a $3.3 million expansion project.

This expansion will add 100,200 square feet of manufacturing, shipping, receiving and warehousing space to its current plant, allowing it to reduce costs and streamline efficiencies. The project is expected to be completed this June.

“We’re excited to expand our facilities in Green Bay,” said Dick Resch, chief executive officer, KI. “Not only will this expansion reduce our manufacturing costs, increase our capabilities and extend our efficiencies, but it will also position KI for future employment growth and allow us to be more responsive to the ever-changing needs of our customers.”

KI’s Green Bay facility manufactures contract seating and educational furniture solutions. This plant is one of nine manufacturing facilities that KI operates nationwide, two others of which are located in Wisconsin in Bonduel and Manitowoc.

Bayland Buildings Inc. is the general contractor for the project, which is expected to be complete in June.
