Klement’s Sausage Co., Milwaukee, Wis., broke ground on an expansion of its flagship facility in Milwaukee. The expansion will allow Klement’s to meet increased demand.

“We are proud to be Milwaukee’s Hometown Sausage,” says Tom Danneker, chief executive officer. “Over the past year, we’ve greatly enhanced our relationship with the community through partnerships with the

Milwaukee Bucks, Summerfest, the Wisconsin State Fair and the Milwaukee County Parks. The response from the community has been overwhelming. Our customers gave us the confidence and ability to move forward with this expansion today. We look forward to meeting the growing demand for our hand-crafted Klement’s sausage for years to come.”

The $7.5 project is slated to add 5,000 square feet, reconstruct 50,000 square feet and upgrade manufacturing equipment.

Miron Construction Inc., Neenah, Wis., was tapped to work on the construction.
