The Village of North Fond du Lac has completed the sale of 4.83 acres in the Northgate Business Park to Milwaukee-based Johnstone Supply. The site will be home to a new 25,000 square foot facility that is slated to be completed in the summer of 2020.
“We are really excited to be expanding our footprint in the greater Fond du Lac area,” shared Paul Chawla, Chief Operating Officer of Johnstone Supply – Milwaukee. “We see tremendous growth potential for our company and the Northgate Business Park is perfectly situated for our needs.”
Johnstone Supply is a heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) supply company that supplies parts and equipment to the residential, light commercial and industrial markets. The company serves as the industry’s one stop shop for all HVACR related needs. Johnstone recently entered the local market by leasing 20,000 square feet in the Fond du Lac area to serve as a temporary location until construction is complete.
Nick Leonard, North Fond du Lac Village Administrator states, “The Village is thrilled to have such a great business locate in our community. This is a great example of Tax Incremental Financing working for a small community. I think the business is a great fit in Northgate Business Park and we look forward to a long relationship with Johnstone.”
The Northgate Business Park is located northeast of Interstate 41 and County Highway OO in the Village of North Fond du Lac. The park’s location offers convenient access to Interstate 41 and Highways 23 and 151. In addition to Johnstone Supply, the park is also home to Agnesian HealthCare Clinic, Aurora Clinic, FZE and Side x Side Construction.
“It’s always great to see the relationships we are developing in the Milwaukee market bear fruit. Our area is ideally situated to access the majority of Wisconsin,” shared Scott Powell, Vice President of Economic Development for Envision Greater Fond du Lac. “Johnstone Supply is another great example of a Wisconsin-based business seeing the value and advantages of locating within the greater Fond du Lac area.”
