Material handling systems manufacturer Rite-Hite has expanded its operations by adding an office location in Milwaukee's historic Third Ward. The 12,500-square-foot facility will house 20-plus full-time sales management and corporate marketing employees.
In addition, the new location will feature an education center that will host up to 24 additional people at a time for an international 3-month sales training program. The first training classes started at the end of February. The Rite-Hite Sales Academy, which provides training for existing salespeople, will also reside here, the company says.
The company said in a statement that it has grown steadily in recent years and is up to over 2,000 employees worldwide, having added more than 200 people to its global workforce since 2014. Rite-Hite's Milwaukee area-facilities include the company's corporate headquarters and a research and development facility, both in Brown Deer, Wisc. In addition to its Milwaukee locations, the company operates plants in Iowa and Mississippi, and also has sales, service and manufacturing in China, Europe, and Canada.
Rite-Hite's products include vehicle restraints, dock levelers, integrated controls, dock seals and shelters, industrial doors, HVLS fans, safety barrier, industrial curtain walls, machine guarding systems, and aftermarket products and services.
