Trek Bicycle Corp. plans to move its global distribution center from Oconomowoc to a new 250,000-square-foot facility in the Village of Johnson Creek.

The $7-million building, to be located on 17.7 acres at 425 Resort Drive behind the Comfort Suites in Johnson Creek, is expected to be open by the end of 2015.

“We’re excited about the expanded capabilities this new facility offers us,” said Trek Vice President of Supply Chain Roger Gierhart. “We have always been committed to Wisconsin and this new center is going to help us become more efficient, streamline our warehousing and delivery processes, and gives us space to continue our growth.”

Waterloo-based Trek has 60 employees at the Oconomowoc facility, and all of them will be offered the opportunity to move over to the Johnson Creek center, which will have about 80 employees.

Trek has been manufacturing bicycles in Waterloo, since 1976, and currently has nearly 1,000 employees in Wisconsin.
