Werner La Crosse Ground Breaking

La Crosse, WI - November 2, 2017 -

Werner Electric broke ground on a 23,400-square-foot branch location in the La Crosse International Business Park today. Participating in the ground breaking, among the Werner leadership, were members of the La Crosse Chamber of Commerce and other city officials.

The new La Crosse facility is a relocation of the La Crescent branch. "With the continuous growth of our business, we see this as a good opportunity to invest in a larger footprint to support the local market," Ben Granley, Werner Electric President said.

Werner Electric has a rich history of electrical distribution in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin that began in 1920. Specializing in automation, clean energy, lighting and electrical products, solutions and services, the local team is excited to continue to help customers in their market, along with introducing themselves to new ones. Brad Windjue, East Region Vice President said, "the upgraded facility is a way to support our customers even better."

Located central to the La Crosse market, the new building will be twice the size of the previous location and includes plans for a 30% growth in employees. Construction will be completed in May, with an anticipated Grand Opening in June.

Werner Electric supports Clean Energy Jobs in Minnesota

Clean Energy Press Conference

Ben Granley, Werner Electric President, met with MN Lt. Governor Tina Smith and Minnesota State Senators Karin Housley and Nick Frentz, among others on Thursday at the Minnesota State Capitol to discuss the importance of Clean Energy jobs. Jobs related to clean energy in Minnesota have grown 5.3 percent over the past year, a significant uptick that prompted a bipartisan team of state lawmakers and Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to call Thursday for boosting the state's renewable energy goals in 2018. The state of Minnesota is currently working to ensure that 25 percent of its energy comes from renewable sources by 2025. Housley and Frentz want to increase that goal to 50 percent by 2030.

WCCO's Bill Hudson spoke with Ben after the press conference to learn more about how Werner Electric is being a Clean Energy job leader in the state of Minnesota.
