KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WFRV) - A brand new 20,000 sq. ft. expansion is officially complete for Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 400 in Kaukauna.

Business Manager Jeff Knaus says the new addition, which cost $2.2 million, will help the business grow locally, as well as help them maintain their state-of-the-art training facility. He also says their products are in demand everywhere. "85-90% of all pipe fabrication leaves the state of Wisconsin, and it's a global market," says Knaus.

The center now has 39 welding booths, and four additional full-size classrooms. It also gained some much-needed storage space.
