Milwaukee cleanup for Komatsu Mining HQ visited by EPA leader: Slideshow
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s top official visited Milwaukee Monday and toured the former Solvay Coke & Gas Co. Superfund site that will soon be transformed into Komatsu Mining Corp.’s headquarters.

Although vacant and contaminated for several years, the 46-acre, harborside property on East Greenfield Avenue will become part of Komatsu’s $285 million headquarters. That headquarters could grow to more than 1,000 workers. Foundation work has already begun for that project, and Komatsu next year expects to start installing equipment in its new buildings, according to a written statement from John Koetz, president of Komatsu Mining.

“We are excited to see it transforming from an abandoned brownfield to a vibrant workplace with family-sustaining jobs for the future,” Koetz said.
