A Wisconsin-based remodeling company will soon open a new location in downtown Wausau.
Tundraland Home Improvements will open a showroom and design center at 305 Third St. by the end of January, according to a press release from the company. The center is being opened to meet the rising demand for the company's bath and window divisions.
The company is based out of Kaukauna, and sells only American-made products, specializing in bath remodeling, replacement windows and deck construction, according to the release. The company was drawn to opening a location in Wausau because of the city's passion and culture.
"The Wausau community aligns with Tundraland's core values of giving back through outlets such as art and music," said Brian Gottlieb, the company president and owner. "The Wausau area showcases (its) unique culture through numerous areas of their community and is the type of area we want to bring jobs to."
The company expects to hire 30 employees in the area immediately, and to add 30 more over the next 12 months.
The space Tundraland is filling once belonged to Kidz Closet, a children's consignment shop, which closed in January 2017.
