InForm Product Development Announces New Corporate Headquarters in Sun Prairie Business Park

Press Release
City of Sun Prairie 

InForm Product Development has reached an agreement with the City of Sun Prairie to acquire a five-acre parcel in the Sun Prairie Business Park for the construction of a new 26,400 s.f. corporate headquarters.

Ed Raleigh, Vice-President for InForm Product Development, stated:

“This new facility in Sun Prairie will allow InForm to develop and expand our electrical engineering group, expand our current prototype capabilities to include CNC machining, expand our in-house rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, and develop new short-run manufacturing services to our customers in the biosciences and lab equipment fields.  Thank you to the City of Sun Prairie for all your help in making this project happen.  We’re excited about our future here in Sun Prairie.”

The project more than doubles the size of their current facility, leaves room for future expansion, and will result in 24 new technical jobs being created.  InForm plans to have their site plan approved by the City and break ground yet this summer, and intends to open the new facility in early 2015.

The agreement was approved by the Sun Prairie City Council at its meeting on Tuesday night.

Mayor Jon Freund released the following statement:

“I could not be more pleased that InForm has decided to continue to grow here and expand their headquarters here in Sun Prairie.  Their additional investment in both real estate and quality new jobs is exactly what we want to see from the employers in our community, and we look forward to their continued growth for years to come.  Other technology and advanced manufacturing companies will hopefully take notice and follow InForm’s lead and invest in Sun Prairie.”

Council President Mary Polenske also added:

“InForm has been absolutely wonderful to work with.  I want to thank InForm for choosing to continue to grow in Sun Prairie, and for reminding us all what a great community Sun Prairie is as a place to do business.  Special thanks to Mr. Ed Raleigh for all of his hard work and cooperation in working with us on this project. We look forward to celebrating this new facility being opened in Sun Prairie in 2015.”
