BALDWIN, WI (WTAQ) - It’s going to look just like the Duesenbergs built in the 1930s. A company has bought a building in Baldwin, Wisconsin, saying it intends to build the Duesenberg II there, starting this summer. The reproduction cars were also built between 1978 and 2000. The company is also planning to produce a motorcycle trike and eventually a modern luxury car in a couple of years.
The building in Baldwin is more than 160 thousand square feet. Company bosses say they will start with 50 employees, growing to 250 in three years and may reach a work force of 400 in five years.
Local officials say manufacturing jobs are especially welcome in St. Croix County and the rest of western Wisconsin.
