Cutting Edge Fabrication Continues to Grow With Facilities Expansion

MILWAUKEE, WI - May 16, 2019 - Cutting Edge Fabrication (CEF) has acquired property adjacent to its existing Milwaukee facility to accommodate business growth. The expansion adds a 20,000 square foot building and 3.5 acres of property for a combined 80,000+ square feet of structures and 7 acres of land. The new facility will house raw material, project staging, production fixtures, and serve as general warehousing.

"We were running out of room to keep operating efficiently. Raw materials and staging for large projects consume an incredible amount of space. The new building relieves our current congestion and hopefully will do so well into the future. If not, we have the additional land to take advantage of." said Keith Butze, President at Cutting Edge Fabrication.
