West Bend, WI – Delta Defense LLC, currently headquartered in downtown West Bend, Wisconsin, is slated to outgrow their current space within the next 18 months and plans to build a new 65,000 square foot headquarters to accommodate this growth.
The company is currently in discussions with the West Bend City Planning Commission regarding location and their decision will be contingent upon about potential incentives available from the city, county and state.
Moving forward Delta Defense is working closely with Kahler Slater, as the lead design architectural firm and The Opus Group to develop, design and construct the new corporate headquarters.
Currently the company occupies a total of 30,000 sq. feet between two locations within Washington County: their main headquarters, located in downtown West Bend, and an additional fulfillment center located in Jackson’s Northwest Business Park.
Delta Defense relocated to West Bend after remodeling the former Museum of Wisconsin Art building in November of 2013—and since then has grown tremendously. The company reports annual sales growth at over 45 percent and touts an over 60 percent increase in their employee base in just the past two years.
President and CEO Tim Schmidt calls this “an exciting time” for him, his employees, and the concealed carry community.
Membership in the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) is the main product offered and supported by Delta Defense LLC, and the USCCA membership base has grown over 80% in the last two years.
“We’re seeing an explosion of interest when it comes to carrying a gun for self-defense. More and more people are seeking education and training for themselves and their families. That means more opportunity for Delta Defense and the USCCA to provide these services to responsible men and women all across the country,” he says.
Delta Defense, LLC CFO Jerry Noskowiak expects the growth to continue, He projects that within the next five years, Delta Defense will employ 200 people and as a result will add an additional $5-6 million in employee compensation to the surrounding community.
