Satisloh North America continues expanding their headquarters, based here. The company recently completed a 13,000 square foot addition to their warehouse as well as moving their training Academy into space vacated by another tenant. Constant growth: the company has been in Germantown, Wisconsin for 23 years and expanded their headquarters’ footprint six times – or on average every 4.5 years.
“Only two years after moving to this new, bigger space, we continued growing and now occupy the entire building ‒ 56,000 square feet,” said Pete Lothes, Satisloh President/CEO. “Because of our much larger warehouse space, we now house all products at our headquarters. Previously, we rented space at other locations because we simply did not have enough room for our entire inventory.”
The company’s training program, Satisloh Academy, now has 12,000 square feet of private training space for attendees that travel to Germantown. “Our Academy has its own practical lab for hands-on training with the appropriate machines and tools – they aren’t just looking at screen shots or manuals – they’re putting their hands inside a machine and learning – that’s invaluable.” Lothes continued: “We believe that quality training is essential to a lab’s success. And that for the best training possible, operators should come here, to a facility specifically designed for training, without the distractions of their job, and without interrupting the operation’s normal production environment. We’ve found students learn a lot from each other, swapping experiences.”
The newly expanded Academy space also features a dedicated classroom as well as a private kitchen and entrance. The expanded space includes a tradeshow staging area, as well.
