Uline, Inc. Key Developments

Uline Inc. to Open New Office Building

Uline Inc. announced that the company plans to begin construction this spring on a new office building near its Pleasant Prairie corporate headquarters after receiving final local approval for the project. The company will develop a 284,260-square-foot office building and related site improvements on 37 acres along the west I-94 frontage road, south of Highway Q. The new three-story building will be similar to the existing corporate headquarters at 12575 Uline Drive. That building is located northwest of the development site. The preliminary plans were approved in March. Construction is expected to be completed in August 2017. Uline expects to initially have 500 people at the new office building, with that number eventually growing to 800 employees. The new office building will accommodate the continued growth of the company, which is owned by Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein. Uline also is building a second 1.1 million-square-foot warehouse on Uline Drive, west of Uline's existing distribution center, with Highway U to the west and Highway Q to north. That building, including 23,000 square feet of two-story office space, will be completed early this year, according to general contractor Mortenson Corp.

Uline Inc. Plans to Open New Orlando Sales Office

Uline Inc. plans to open new Orlando sales office later this year. The company signed a lease for 19,239 square feet, filling the last remaining space at the 25-acre John Young Business Park industrial complex in southwest Orlando.

Uline Inc. to Build Two-Story Conference Center Near Headquarters West of Interstate 94

Uline Inc. has received tentative approval to alter the floodplain on its campus in Pleasant Prairie and build a two-story conference center near its headquarters west of Interstate 94. The Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission recommended approval of the plan to place fill on the northwest corner of a retention pond on its property and create additional flood storage on the southern portion of its campus. The alteration to the floodplain boundary will require approval from the Village Board, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources before the work can begin. The floodplain includes a small tributary flowing into the Des Plaines River. The company plans to build a conference center with 22,500 square feet for private corporate meetings, conferences and events with about 200 to 300 attendees. The building will have a large gathering area on the main level and an outdoor deck overlooking the pond. The company is also building a second, 1.1-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in the village. Roughly 1,100 people are working in the company's current complex of warehouses, offices and distribution centers, and the company is expected to add 380 new jobs when it opens two warehouses now under construction.
