The business has already moved some operations into an existing building at 6011 29th Ave. It plans to invest $1.5 million in the Kenosha facility.
In addition to making Kenosha its new headquarters, IMAP hopes to move a portion of its contracted manufacturing work from China to Wisconsin.
“The Kenosha Area Business Alliance is pleased to welcome IMAP to Kenosha County,” said Heather Wessling, vice president of economic development for KABA. “We initially worked with Len Koren’s broker.”
Wessling said KABA began meeting with Jennifer Kraus of ENJEN Growth Advocates about a year ago to help her client scout potential business sites for IMAP.
“She had several potential clients for our area, and she helped them with site selection,” Wessling said. “We connected her with the properties of interest, and we followed up with scheduling for her client (to visit) those sites.”
To secure the company’s investment in Kenosha, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation will provide IMAP with up to $110,000 in state income tax credits over the next three years. The actual number of credits the company receives is contingent upon the number of jobs it creates.
“We introduced her to WEDC, and she introduced herself to the M7 group,” added Wessling. Milwaukee 7 is the regional, cooperative economic development platform that serves Kenosha and six other Wisconsin counties.
