Site and Operational Plans
On Monday, November 13, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission approved site and operational plans for the FNA Group to occupy 60,256 square feet of a building located at 9505 72nd Avenue. This will be used for an expansion of their manufacturing and assembling of high pressure cleaners in the site they currently occupy, just to the south of this new location. FNA Group is a world class manufacturer of high pressure cleaners, hoses and accessories for consumer and professional markets. They produce products under the following brands; Simpson, Delco and OEM manufacture for MTD, Fastenal, and Dewalt. The expansion area will staff FNA engineering research and development (R&D) and application engineering teams. Twenty percent of the building will be dedicated to R&D and prototyping.
The FNA group relocated a portion of its Arkansas manufacturing operations to Pleasant Prairie in 2015 as well as its corporate headquarters from Illinois. Currently the FNA group employs 125 employees at the Pleasant Prairie location and this expansion will allow for the hiring of 40 new full-time employees working on first shift. There will be 85 parking spaces, four of which will be handicapped accessible. The average number of truck trips to the site will be eight per day with a maximum of twelve trips. Delivery hours will be limited to 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
