Posted on 06/06/2022
On Monday, June 6, the Plan Commission considered and approved Site and Operational Plans for Tom Barnhill, President of Great Lakes Warehousing. The company plans to occupy an approximately 220,000 square foot portion of an existing building in Pleasant Prairie at 9201 Wilmot Road for food grade dry storage, warehousing, and distribution.

Great Lakes Warehousing will store low-hazard items such as medical face masks, cleaning wipes, plastic coolers, empty aerosol cans, COVID test kits, and plastic containers. The company services businesses in and out of the area. Some Pleasant Prairie businesses include Arvato, Pfizer, and Rehrig Pacific Company. 

"The Village is glad to see Great Lakes Warehousing expand into Pleasant Prairie," stated Jean Werbie-Harris, Community Development Director. "The company is known for its speed and accuracy, and we are proud to welcome them to our business community. I look forward to seeing the company continue to grow and succeed at this new location." 

Great Lakes Warehousing has been in business for over 19 years to store items for manufacturers, wholesalers, importers, and exporters. The company currently has a warehouse located at 4200 39th Avenue in Kenosha and is expanding operations to the new location in Pleasant Prairie. 

The company is not planning any interior or exterior building or site modifications at the location. The facility will employ approximately eight full-time and two part-time employees working between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The site currently provides over 150 parking spaces, and the tenant space includes seven dock doors. The company anticipates being operational at this location by July of 2022.
