MILWAUKEE TOOL

Milwaukee Electric Tool Company’s penchant for being “disruptive” in the tool industry has created a company that is the industry leader in innovation of power tools in the construction trades. Being on the cutting edge in the construction tool industry has also created a unique company culture that is a well-known and respected construction industry brand that has enjoyed great success and tremendous growth.

METCO requested that the design of their facility “express the nature of construction” and in doing so, reflect the various applications for their power tools.
