Perhaps surprisingly, much of the new construction of light to heavy industrial facilities has occurred west of Appleton, said Jim Schlies, vice president of economic development for the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

"Most of the development in new manufacturing construction has been out in the townships," said Schlies, who noted that industrial development occurring in the towns of Greenville and Grand Chute - perhaps some of the most prolific recent new manufacturing construction - has occurred in industrial parks owned by private developers rather than the municipality.
As Appleton is running out of space in its Northeast Business Park, Little Chute is arguably best positioned to benefit from new manufacturing growth, Schlies said.
Vacant manufacturing space isn't too widely available in the Fox Cities, Schlies noted. According to Grubb & Ellis/Pfefferle's Industrial Market Trends Report for the second quarter 2007 - the most recent report available - vacancy rates for industrial and warehouse properties across the Fox Cities are hovering right around 11.5 percent.

"We're billed as Wisconsin's shopping place," he said.
