A school apparel company supplying uniforms to children in all 50 states will build and move into a new home in Oak Creek.
Global Schoolwear started construction on Wednesday on a 75,000-square-foot building on West Oak Creek Parkway off West Oakwood Road.
Design2Construct Development Company will be the main contractor for the project, and construction is expected to be finished in spring 2023, D2C Office Manager Brittany Nothem said in a statement.
The building will contain 3,000 square feet of office space, 40,000 square feet of warehouse space and a 15,000 square foot embroidery space, Nothem said. Global Schoolwear distributes school uniforms to students at more than 600 schools in all 50 states.
The company moved to Oak Creek to better accommodate its growth and get all its production under one roof, CEO and founder Adam Weil said. Weil started in the apparel industry in 2002 and formed the business with his co-founder, Rupesh Agrawal, in 2019.
Tate Boho, D2C’s vice president, said at the groundbreaking the project would have stalled without Oak Creek’s help.
D2C partnered with architecture firm the Consortium ae LLC to complete the project, Nothem said. The completed clothing center will bring an influx of jobs to the area, D2C added.
