Drexel Building Supply expanding in Kewaskum, Wisconsin

KEWASKUM, Wis. — Drexel Building Supply is expanding to Kewaskum, Wisconsin after the recent announcement of its acquisition of McMahon & Co, a custom door manufacturer.

“We saw an opportunity to go direct to our consumers with the acquisition of McMahon and have been elated over the experience we have had working with the McMahon team,” said Joel Fleischman, president of Drexel Building Supply. “As we continue with our strategy of growth and vertical integration we became excited about the opportunity to grow with the Village of Kewaskum.”

With an initial expected employment of nearly 100 team members, Drexel Building Supply is anticipating breaking ground this year on a plot of land within a new industrial park Drexel and the Village of Kewaskum are dubbing the “Blue Door District.” The Blue Door District will be located on the north end of the Village along HWY 28 approximately one-half mile west of US-45. Construction will include a 200,000-plus square-foot building that can be expanded in the future. In addition, Drexel has ownership of remaining lands within the Blue Door District and will be actively recruiting for quality neighbors. This project is subject to the creation of a Tax Increment Financing District (TID), land annexation and  mutually agreed upon developer’s agreement.

In 2022, the Village of Kewaskum and Drexel Building Supply began conversations about the possibility of locating a new facility within village limits. “Kewaskum has an increased focus on what the future of the Village will look like,” said Adam Gitter, village administrator. “Having a distinguished company, such as Drexel, investing in our community is exciting on many levels. Not only will this provide ample job opportunities and have a positive impact on the Village financially, we are also showcasing that Kewaskum is a destination for quality business growth and expansion.”
