Wells Vehicle Electronics recently expanded its manufacturing plant in Wisconsin. The company also relocated its corporate office.

The building project, which broke ground in September 2012, increased Wells’ manufacturing space by nearly 40 percent and relocated Wells office employees to a new facility attached to the company’s manufacturing plant.

Governor Scott Walker joined the leadership team and staff of Wells Vehicle Electronics to celebrate the grand opening.

“Wells Vehicle Electronics has called Fond du Lac, Wis., home for 110 years,” Don Lauby, vice president of operations for Wells said. “Our 64,000-square-foot addition features engineering labs, test labs, a state-of-the-art automotive tech garage, a tool room to support new product development and a home for corporate employees’ offices.”

The Wells Tech Garage provides engineers and designers additional bays for on-vehicle application and product testing, a space for the technical services team to host industry and training webinars, and an area to continue producing the company’s YouTube instructional videos.

David Peace, president of Wells, added: “With support from the city, Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Wells was able to keep our headquarters in its birthplace, retain our existing job force, institute a plan to increase our employee count by 30 percent over the next two years, and continue to design and deliver superior products for our customers.”
