Zilber Property Group has announced that Silgan Containers has signed a lease to occupy 525,000 square feet at Zilber’s recently completed speculative industrial facility in Kenosha.
Silgan will occupy the entire building, known as Zilber Industrial 1, at Kenosha Corporate Park, located at Highway 142 and 128th Avenue, for its manufacturing and distribution operations.
ZPG broke ground on the project in the fall, and Silgan is scheduled to begin operations at the facility this month.
“We are thrilled to have entered into a long term relationship with Silgan. They are the industry leader in metal food packaging. Their commitment to quality and excellence mirror our business model,” said John Kersey, Zilber executive vice president.
“The Silgan Containers project entails a significant capital investment from the company and brings many high paying jobs to Kenosha,” Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian said. “We are excited about this development and look forward to Silgan joining our roster of great companies here in Kenosha.”
“Kenosha County is thrilled to welcome Silgan Containers,” said Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser. “Silgan — whose expertise in can making can be traced back to 1899 — is the kind of innovative company that we embrace in this community.
“We look forward to working with them and helping them continue to grow into the future.”
In addition to Zilber Industrial 1, remaining developable land at Kenosha Corporate Park, which totals approximately 20 acres, can accommodate industrial manufacturing and distribution users from 50,000 square feet up to 400,000 square feet.
It doesn’t take all that much for Tremper football coach Jared McGranahan to imagine an entirely different scenario playing out in front of his eyes than the one that unfolded Friday night in a Southeast Conference opener against powerful Oak Creek at Ameche Field.
