Andis will build 50,000 sq. ft. addition in Sturtevant

Andis Company will build a 50,000 sq. ft. expansion of its headquarters at 1800 Renaissance Blvd. in Sturtevant.

The expansion will create space for manufacturing and warehousing while generating job opportunities, the company said. Construction is expected to completed by the end of this summer.

"With pride, Andis Company has been calling Racine County home for 88 years," said Matthew K. Andis, executive vice president. "Partnering with the Village of Sturtevant, we look forward to fostering our mission to create value for our customers, community, and families; fulfill our passion for growth; and fuel our dedication to legacy."

Andis now has 107,000 sq. ft. of offices, manufacturing, assembly and distribution operations. The expansion will be on the south side of its existing building. The company, which employs 350 workers, has previously said the addition -- costing $2.3 million -- will create six new jobs. Andis has asked the Sturtevant Village Board and Community Development Authority for $130,000 in incentive money.

Andis Company, a four-generation family-held business founded in 1922, manufactures handheld tools to trim, cut, curl, straighten and dry hair.
