The 225,000-square-foot facility will serve as a hub for construction innovation in the areas of energy, microgrids, modular-builds, e-houses and specialty engineering. A natural energy microgrid — built by Faith and Excellerate Manufacturing — will allow the building to operate off the traditional energy grid. The new facility is expected to add more than 200 jobs to the region.
A subsidiary of Menasha-based Faith Technologies, Excellerate is an electrically focused manufacturer of made-to-order assemblies through custom-engineered construction solutions.
Excellerate has five manufacturing hubs across the country — Lenexa, Kan., Atlanta, Oshkosh, Neenah and Appleton. The Oshkosh and Neenah facilities will continue their focus on manufacturing and assembly work for electrical construction.
Faith Technologies plans to begin construction on the building this spring, with the project expected to be finished by next fall.
“This site will allow us to expand our product line and will serve as an innovation showcase for our customers and partners both nation- and worldwide,” Excellerate Manufacturing President Scott Romenesko said in a news release. “This new location will allow us to expand our integrated modular builds, which will include energy generation, storage and other innovative product solutions.”
