space
Construction on the addition to the Waukesha Bearings complex on the north side of Antigo is moving with great determinitation this week.

While there are walls rising, heavy machinery is roaring and trucks are dumping, it will all pause at 10 a.m. Thursday for a formal groundbreaking program.

Waukesha Bearings is a global leader in the design and manufacture of engineered hydrodynamic bearings and magnetic bearing systems. It has repeatedly expanded the Antigo facility including the project now underway.

The new construction is a nearly 35,000 square foot extension of the current building at 703 Amron Ave.

Founded in Waukesha in 1946, Waukesha Bearings has been part of the Antigo community for the last 45 years. The bearings manufactured deliver long life and reliable performance for turbo machinery across the world's oil and gas, power generation, marine and industrial markets.

The additional manufacturing space will accommodate current production for marine bearing systems as well as new marine projects awarded to the company by General Dynamics Electric Boat of Groton, Conn.

The Waukesha Bearings partnership with Electric Boat and the U.S. Navy goes back more than 50 years and includes bearing systems for both the surface fleet and submarines.

"Waukesha Bearings made its name with high-quality bearing solutions. Our system knowledge, custom engineering, and precision manufacturing make us a trusted supplier for mission-critical projects," John Sullivan, plant manager for the Antigo facility, said. "Our team here in Antigo takes great pride in the product we produce, and we are thrilled to be expanding our capacity."

Once the expansion is complete, the Antigo facility will have nearly 100,000 square feet of space.
