Rexnord Corporation already leases space in the Global Water Center but, this summer, will relocate corporate executives there, from West Milwaukee.
The center is a seven-story former warehouse in the Walker's Point neighborhood and now houses more than 30 water-related organizations. The center's mission is to foster the development of freshwater-related technology, for eventual conversion into businesses and jobs. It brings together under one roof researchers and industry.
Rexnord's move will bring occupancy at the center to 85%, according to The Water Council.
Council President and CEO Dean Amhaus says, "It is clear that global water technology companies are attracted to the Global Water Center to have first-hand access to entrepreneurs, researchers and students developing new technologies."
More than 15 international delegations have already visited.
