Vermeer Wisconsin Opens New Facility in Appleton

APPLETON, WI — Vermeer Wisconsin recently celebrated the grand opening of its new 26,000-square-foot facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house event. The new building replaces the Little Chute location, which the business had been operating in for the last 20 years. The Appleton location, constructed by Briohn Building Corporation, is located two miles north of Highway 41 on Richmond Street and serves northeast Wisconsin and upper Michigan.

The building is comprised of eight service bays and a dedicated wash bay, a large parts warehouse, five administrative offices, seven sales offices, a conference and break room, as well as a technician work area.

“We are looking forward to continuing to serve our customers at our new facility in Appleton — which is three times larger than our previous location — and [continuing to grow] in northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan,” said John Willinger, President.

Since 1961, Vermeer Wisconsin has been a family-owned Wisconsin business that provides Vermeer industrial products for the underground, environmental, recycling, and forestry industries. Vermeer Wisconsin has four full-service locations throughout Wisconsin: Appleton, Butler (Milwaukee metro), Madison, and West Salem (La Crosse) and a service bay in Iron River, Michigan.

Vermeer Wisconsin specializes in selling, leasing, servicing, and providing training on all Vermeer industrial products such as underground utilities, landscaping, arborist, forestry, and recycling industries, and other complementary products from several other manufacturers.
