Breakthrough To Build In Downtown Green Bay’s Shipyard Development
Breakthrough is familiar with change. In fact, we embrace it, helping shippers around the world change and elevate their transportation energy and information strategy to achieve transparency and remove distortion from their supply chains.
For this reason, it is with great excitement that we announce details about our new corporate headquarters. This change will enhance Breakthrough’s ability to attract and retain the smart, passionate, and edgy talent we need to continue growing our team and moving our organization further into the future.
Maintaining our commitment to Downtown Green Bay, the new building will be part of the larger Shipyard development project, further growing the Broadway District. This development will create new and engaging spaces for the Breakthrough team, our clients, and the surrounding community at large.
“Breakthrough has been, and will continue to be, committed to Downtown Green Bay,” announced president and CEO Doug Mueller during the press conference on Monday. “We look forward to providing our clients with a memorable Breakthrough experience when they visit us in Green Bay.”
The new corporate headquarters will bring all Green Bay Area Breakthrough team members together under one roof with space to innovate, collaborate, and deliver cutting-edge solutions and distinguished service to clients.
MAKING CHANGE REAL
Breaking ground on the new headquarters is slated to begin in spring of 2019, with team members transitioning into the new space in early 2020. The building will be approximately 40,000 square feet with room for future expansion to accommodate continued growth.
During Monday’s announcement, renderings of the building were revealed by Mueller and Doug Page, President & CEO of Performa, Inc., the project’s architecture firm.
MUTUALLY COMMITTED TO DOWNTOWN GREEN BAY
“We are very pleased with the support provided by the City of Green Bay and Mayor Schmitt. They have shown their commitment to Breakthrough as part of Downtown Green Bay,” Mueller said.
During the announcement, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt echoed the commitment to collaboration on both sides. “We appreciate each and every business in the city and there’s nothing better than securing the world headquarters of a successful corporation in Green Bay,” Schmitt said.
Although all Breakthrough operations will move to the new Shipyard location, Breakthrough will maintain a presence at the Technology and Innovation Center located at Backstage at the Meyer.
“We’re experiencing growth across all segments of our business. And, with about 80 percent of our entire team working here in Green Bay, it was vital to secure a new location for our headquarters,” said Mueller. “This plan allows us to continue our mission of using data-driven strategies and expert industry insights to improve supply chain efficiency, cutting costs and consumption while reducing emissions.”
In 2017, Breakthrough helped clients eliminate more than 8.9 million gallons of diesel fuel from their supply chains and reduce their collective carbon footprint by more than 90,000 metric tons of CO2.
