Acme Construction Metals will move its Kenosha-based business to a 102,500 square foot building at 1800 Clark Street in Racine.

The metal fabricating company, which makes structural and ornamental metals, bought the multi-tenant facility because it needed more space.

Acme Construction Metals products have been used in the theming structures for Six Flags XFlight roller coaster, the Fischel Park band shell, custom railing and structural support projects.

Jeffery Nelson founded the company in 2004.

“As our company has continued to grow, our space needs were greater than our current location could accommodate so we began to look for a larger facility. The 1800 Clark Street property is perfect for our needs and it will provide us ample space to grow,” Nelson said. “There is no way we could have accomplished this purchase without the help of Racine’s Mayor John Dickert and RCEDC Staff.”

Six small businesses occupy the building.

 

“Racine is fortunate to be home to many different sized companies, similar to that of Wisconsin,” said Mayor John Dickert. “Racine has a preponderance of first stage companies, those with two to nine employees, just like Acme Construction Metals. The partnership that the City has with RCEDC facilitated this success, we welcome this company to Racine and look forward to more projects like this in the future.”
