Fleet Farm Group LLC is purchasing the current Secura Insurance headquarters, 2401 S. Memorial Drive, Appleton, for its new corporate headquarters. Secura is moving to its new headquarters in Fox Crossing in October.
Fleet Farm plans to bring together personnel from six locations under one roof at its new 192,000-square-foot headquarters.
“We looked at a lot of locations, including some in other cities and states, and the current Secura location is perfect,” said Fleet Farm CEO Derick Prelle. “It allows us to stay in the Appleton area, and the Secura facility answers our needs. It is a perfect size for us, and it has been beautifully maintained.”
Approximately 500 Fleet Farm employees will be housed at its new corporate location, including as many as 70 jobs that will be transferred from Fleet Farm’s Brainerd, Minn., location. Fleet Farm plans to begin its move after Jan. 1 and have all its operations consolidated at the new headquarters by the end of March.
Fleet Farm’s corporate headquarters has been located on South Lynndale Drive in Appleton for 45 years.
