Gleason Redi-Mix LLC is seeking permits to operate a heavy manufacturing plant in an existing building in Milwaukee. An application was submitted to the city’s Zoning Appeals Board on December 13, 2021. Special use is requested by the company to operate from a building located at 4111 W. Mill Road.

Gleason Redi-Mix is ​​seeking to reallocate the Mill Road property which was previously occupied by Roofing MM Schranz. A real estate purchase agreement between the two parties shows that MM Schranz Roofing sold the 4.03 acres of property for $825,000.

According to city documents, MM Schranz Roofing is moving to a new, larger location at 6360 N. 60and St. Their new property was purchased in 2019.

Gleason Redi-Mix, which supplies area contractors and construction companies with ready-mixed concrete, plans to invest $2.3 million in the Mill Road property. This would include adding a ready mix plant to the existing property, conveyors and an area for material storage bins. The existing building on the property would be retained.

There will be approximately 25-30 employees working at the site.

“Ready-mix plants contain significantly more components,” according to a special use statement from Gleason Redi-Mix. “In other words, it is the assembly of tools and machines such as mixers, cement feeders, aggregate feeders, conveyors, radial stackers, aggregate bins, cement bins, heaters, coolers and cement silos.”

Currently, the company has locations in Kenosha, Racine, Burlington and Franksville. The Kenosha location serves as the headquarters.
