The City of Sheboygan agreed to sell 40 acres of land located at the South Pointe Enterprise Campus just off of Highway 43 to S2A Modular, a California-based manufacturer of the world’s first self-sustaining, custom, luxury modular smart homes. After the project’s completion, it is expected that over 100 people will be employed in various construction-related trades.
With plants in California, Florida and Texas, S2A Modular plans to open its fourth plant in the City of Sheboygan. The project’s first phase will be the company’s more than 100,000-square- foot MegaFactory capable of producing up to 1,000 homes annually. The second phase will begin after a certain sales goals have been met and on product demand. The company anticipates a total investment of $30 million. MegaFactory construction should begin late fall, with the interior work being completed throughout the winter. Home production from the plant may begin as early as the third quarter of 2022. The company and community are completing the due diligence phase of the project.
“A crucial component of our growth strategy has been finding locations with an immediate need for high-quality, affordable housing, which is why we are thrilled to announce Sheboygan as the location of our next MegaFactory,” said Brian Kuzdas, CEO and co-founder of S2A Modular. “Mayor Ryan Sorenson, City Administrator Todd Wolf and the entire SCEDC have been fantastic to work with, and we are very proud to partner with the City of Sheboygan to help quickly address its housing needs.”
Mayor Ryan Sorenson said, “We are excited to announce that S2A has chosen to grow and develop a new factory right here in Sheboygan. The jobs and passion that they bring will be a wonderful fit to our business park. Having S2A in Sheboygan will be a major component in addressing our housing needs throughout the Sheboygan area. With S2A’s mission, they will be providing innovative and sustainable solutions to address affordable housing all across Wisconsin. This is a major win for our community, and we could not be more excited to have them here.”
City Administrator Todd Wolf said, “With the recent release of the City of Sheboygan Affordable Housing Study and the City of Sheboygan’s needs to construct 1,000 single family housing units and other housing types, recruiting a modular housing company makes sense. The city is excited to be working with S2A Modular as the first tenant in the SouthPointe Enterprise Campus and to help fulfill our future housing needs.”
Total property tax valuation is anticipated to be $18,200,000. This investment will help pay off public improvements made in 2018 by the City of Sheboygan.
Having affordable housing options is vital to Sheboygan’s economy and residents, according to a 2021 community survey. The development of new single-family homes in the city remains low compared to historical averages.
