The writing was on the wall, now it becomes permanent. Fleet Farm is consolidating all it’s headquartered locations into 1.

Fleet Farm’s corporate headquarters is moving to Appleton, Wisconsin. Fleet Farm is buying the Secura Insurance headquarters , the companies announced earlier today.

“We looked at a lot of locations, including some in other cities and states, and the current Secura location is perfect,” Derick Prelle, Fleet Farm’s CEO, said in a news release. “It allows us to stay in the Appleton area, and the Secura facility answers our needs. It is a perfect size for us, and it has been beautifully maintained.”

Fleet Farm says about 500 employees will occupy the 192,000-square-foot building. The company plans to consolidate operations from six locations, including Brainerd.
