Hayward, WI - The Northwest WI Regional Business Development Fund, Inc. (NWREDF), a subsidiary corporation of Northwest Regional Planning Commission (NWRPC), awarded loan funding for Hill Construction LLC to expand their operations at their headquartered facility on Highway 63 in Hayward, WI.
Hill Construction LLC has been in existence since 2004, and has proven a successful track record over the last 13 years, including surviving the housing crises and economic downturn from 2008 to 2012. Jeremy Hill has been the sole owner of Hill Construction since its inception.
Hill Construction LLC has two divisions that operate through the trade names of Hill Construction (custom homes, residential additions, remodeling, garages and commercial buildings) and Hayward Concrete (poured basements, slabs, flat work, stamped and stained concrete). Hill Construction offers services from concept to final construction. The specialized staff guides clients through initial drawings and designs to the concrete and stick build construction or remodeling.
“With the continuing surge in residential and commercial construction, we had outgrown the current footprint of our building,” Jeremy Hill, owner of Hill Construction explained.
The significant growth in 2015 to 2017, resulting from adding the Hayward Concrete division and growing the employee total to 33, necessitated the 1,500 square foot expansion. Hill Construction will now be able to display its full offerings by providing a conference room, a showroom, and additional offices for the growing staff.
“The new facility was built to accommodate a growing workforce and growth of the company. I wasn’t anticipating an expansion this quickly,” Hill continued.
As the construction industry continues to rebound, this project comes at a good time.
“Being able to retain a business that is helping build the critical infrastructure in Sawyer County is a good use of our funds,” Loan Fund Manager Ken Pearson explained. “Hill Construction is a strong employer for the community who is helping rebuild and strengthen the economy of Northwest Wisconsin.”
The project aims to add 6 new employees and retain 33 jobs, all of which are in a skilled trade.
“I would not have been able to do this project without the assistance of this program,” Hill concluded.
