Cadence, Inc., recently broke ground on a new 62,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility located in the Sturgeon Bay Industrial Park at 1425 S. Neenah Ave., Sturgeon Bay. Cadence is a leading supplier of advanced products, technologies and services to medical, life science, automotive, and industrial companies worldwide. The new facility, nearly three times the size of the existing space, will position the company to expand production capacity and add new technologies to support an expanding customer base.

“Our Sturgeon Bay operation is one of the leading providers in the U.S. of precision metal stamping for the most complex components used in medical, automotive and industrial applications,” said Alan Connor, president and CEO of Cadence. “We continue to expand our unique multi-slide forming, microstamping, insert molding, and assembly capabilities, and this new facility will allow us to continue to grow and better serve our customers.”

Sandy Sekadlo, VP of Manufacturing stated, “We fully expect that this expansion will create many job opportunities over the next several years. This project required the cooperation of Bill Chaudoir and the Door County Economic Development Corporation, the City of Sturgeon Bay and Bayland Builders. I would like to thank them for their efforts and support and extend special appreciation to Roger and Sandy Anderson for their willingness to sell the property. Without that building location, this project would not be possible.”
