Officials from the City of Sun Prairie, the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce, and Madison-Kipp Corporation (MKC) gathered for the official groundbreaking ceremony for a major expansion of MKC’s facility in Sun Prairie. The 90,000 s.f. expansion project will include an estimated $3.5 million in construction. The project will allow for the expansion and consolidation of off-site warehousing as well as additional manufacturing space.
The City of Sun Prairie is providing TIF assistance to reimburse the developer for $274,000 several onsite improvements that ensured the selection of the Sun Prairie location as the expansion site.
MKC President Tony Koblinski credited his workforce as a major driver behind their growth, stating “The expansion of our operations is a testament to the hard work and commitment of every employee of Madison-Kipp. It is through their efforts, that we continue to serve our customers well and are rewarded with increasing business.” He also acknowledged the City’s role as a partner, saying “I appreciate the help and support of the mayor and other elected officials in Sun Prairie, who together with the city staff truly understands how important cooperation is to continue to expand.”
Sun Prairie’s Director of Economic Development released the following statement:
“On behalf of the Mayor and City Council, I want to thank Madison-Kipp for their continued investment in Sun Prairie. This project has been in the making for several years, and its exciting to have it moving forward.
