SUPERVALU ANNOUNCES NEW MIDWEST REGIONAL OFFICE LOCATION
The Village of Pleasant Prairie, the Kenosha Area Business Alliance and SUPERVALU are pleased to announce that SUPERVALU has selected a new location for its Midwest Regional Office. SUPERVALU's Midwest Regional Office will be located at 8401 102nd Street in Pleasant Prairie, approximately one mile from its current office location. Formerly occupied by Hospira, the location offers 43,000 square feet of office space and will accommodate approximately 200 SUPERVALU employees expected to work from the site.
During late 2012, SUPERVALU sold its Midwest Distribution Center facility in Pleasant Prairie to Meijer Distribution, Inc. Since that time, KABA has been working with SUPERVALU to retain and relocate their regional office positions in the area. The company anticipates that office staff will move to the new site in July, once updates to the building have been completed.
William Chew, Regional President for SUPERVALU commented, “We are very pleased to announce to our associates and the community that our regional office will remain in Pleasant Prairie. Our associates are important to our continued success, and we look forward to moving into our new office space later this summer.”
John Steinbrink, Village President added, “SUPERVALU has been a great community partner for the entire Kenosha area. We're excited that they'll retain their regional office jobs here, and we are completely impressed with their commitment to the community.”
Todd Battle, President of the Kenosha Area Business Alliance also added, “SUPERVALU has had a substantial and positive presence in Kenosha County for more than 20 years. The news that they will maintain their Midwest Region Headquarters in Pleasant Prairie is very welcome and another indication that Kenosha County continues to be a great location for business operations.”
This news comes on the heels of other recent economic development announcements, including: EMCO Chemical Distributors decision to relocate its Corporate Headquarters from North Chicago, Illinois to Pleasant Prairie; Good Foods Group's announcement that it will relocate its corporate headquarters and establish production operations in Pleasant Prairie; and Ta Chen International's signing of a long-term lease to occupy a industrial facility in LakeView Corporate Park.
