Thysse Breaks Ground on $10 Million Facility in Oregon, Wisconsin
Thysse held a ceremonial groundbreaking in Oregon, WI, earlier this week on the site where the company will open their new headquarters next year. 150 guests and employees attended the event.
Jason Thysse, President, kicked off the ceremony. “A lot has happened in the last seven years and I couldn’t have done it without my family’s support, and my Thysse family which has grown from 13 employees when we moved here to over 90. It’s absolutely incredible. I thank you all. You should all pat yourselves on the back because you’re really the biggest reason we are here today.”
“What an exciting time for Oregon,” noted Village President, Jeanne Carpenter. “Since my appointment to President this April, this is my fourth grand opening or ribbon cutting.”
The new, two-story, 95,500 square foot project will be the third expansion for the company in the last seven years. Highlights of the building include a two-story lobby with prominent out-of-doors views, large employee breakroom with fireplace lounge, and a second-floor gallery space to display current work. The move will bring all employees back under one roof from their current two locations, with additional room to grow.
Partners in the project include: The Village of Oregon, Oregon Community Bank, Wisconsin Business Development, OPN Architects, Newcomb Construction, and Thysse’s very own Experiential Design Team.
Steve Peotter, President & Chief Executive Officer, Oregon Community Bank, shared, “We are thrilled to be Thysse’s partner again for phase three of the Thysse journey in Oregon. It is a great day to see Thysse continue to grow and expand. To think about the people that are part of your family, the jobs that you have created; the differences you’ve made not just in Oregon and the community but in the lives of all of your colleagues. It’s a proud day for us. The Thysse relationship is an exceptional relationship for Oregon Community Bank. We enjoy all of our clients and Thysse will always have a special place in our heart.”
The building is projected to be completed by July 2020.
