August 5, 2017 – Theresa, WI – A longtime business in neighboring Dodge County is closing.
An article in the Daily Citizen is reporting Thunder Pallet, which is a pallet manufacturing and heat treating facility, will end operations this October.
A portion of the article by Ben Rueter is below.
“It’s been a great run,” company president Ben Mahsem said in a phone interview.
According to a news release from Department of Workforce Development, the facilities at 625 N. Menomonee St., Theresa, and at 909 River Knoll Drive, Mayville, will begin slowing down production Oct. 2 until the complete closure Oct. 31. A notice of the business closing was received by DWD on Aug. 2.
The closure will affect 46 employees — four salaried and 42 hourly positions.
Mahsem said the business is closing because of his health and the decision to close down Thunder Pallet was something that he did not foresee.
The article indicates equipment from Thunder Pallet will be auctioned off in November.
