MENASHA (WLUK) -- A commercial and residential moving company is buying a former packaging plant in Menasha.

C. Coakley manages and implements commercial relocation projects, having worked with hospitals, clinics, office complexes, academic institutions, libraries, and hotels. The company also has warehousing and assembly teams to help with assembling furniture and fixtures; and installing equipment for relocation, remodeling and new construction projects. It also has locations in Milwaukee, Sheboygan, Madison, Port Washington, Kewaskum, and West Allis.

“We have been working in the Fox Valley for years, but this was a great opportunity to have a strong physical presence and be more accessible to our present and future customers,” the company's president, Chris Coakley, said in a news release. “We also look forward to hiring local people to work as part of our Menasha operations team.”

C. Coakley says it plans to hire 25-30 full-time employees in Menasha. Jobs include warehouse workers, logistics employees, straight truck drivers, project managers, forklift operators, sales staff and operations and sales managers.

The Menasha location includes more than 477,000 square feet of food-grade warehouse space and logistics support. C. Coakley also plans to separately lease 24,000 square feet of office space on the property.
