Haribo Permit Extension

HARIBO Extends Building Permits
Posted on 10/12/2020
Today, the Plan Commission approved HARIBO's request to extend the Master Conceptual Plan and Final Site and Operational Plan Building Permits for its manufacturing plant. The extension is a precautionary measure added due to the overlap of expiration dates, the time needed for the approval process from the State and the challenges posed this year due to COVID-19. 

The previous Master Conceptual Plan is expiring November 7, 2020, and the Final Site and Operational Plan is expiring November 11, 2020. While having the extension, HARIBO still intends to meet these deadlines with the following 2020 schedule:
  • Sign a contract with the selected General Contractor in October
  • Submit final plans to the Village Board in October
  • Submit for permits in November
Due to the tight timeframe, Village staff determined it was best to extend the expiration dates out of caution to allow for more time to obtain state approvals. HARIBO has already received conditional approval from the State of Wisconsin for the production building and is working with the State to obtain conditional consent for its warehouse. 

“We’re working closely with the Village of Pleasant Prairie and the State of Wisconsin as we’re making great progress to move forward with our U.S. factory, and to do this during our 100 Year Anniversary is something special,” said Arndt Ruesges, Chief Production Officer, HARIBO of America. “All along we’ve said we want to build a top-quality facility that is woven into the fabric of the community, and as we’re taking these next important steps we’re closer to bringing that to life.”

"HARIBO is a great partner and a pivotal addition to Prairie Highlands Corporate Park,” said Nathan Thiel, Village Administrator. “The project reflects a large investment in the community that will create jobs and benefit the local economy. Pleasant Prairie looks forward to seeing this highly anticipated development take shape.”

The Pleasant Prairie facility will be HARIBO's first-ever North American plant. The campus development is planned to be completed in phases on 136.8 acres of property located at the southwest corner of 120th Avenue (West Frontage Road) and CTH C (Wilmot Road) in the Prairie Highlands Corporate Park.
