Paasche Airbrush will move from Chicago to Kenosha; Company leasing 42,000 square feet

Paasche Airbrush Co. is leasing more than 42,000 square feet from Zilber Property Group at 9511 58th Place in the Business Park of Kenosha to relocate its operations from Chicago to Wisconsin.

A family-owned company founded in 1904, Paasche Airbrush manufactures artist airbrushes, industrial spray guns and spray booths. Vallie Pettersen, Paasche Airbrush president, said the company is best known for its artist airbrush used for everything from model railroads to applying makeup or temporary tattoos and car detailing.

Pettersen said much of the company’s manufacturing is now automated with the advancement of CNC machining. Paasche Airbrush does have around 30 employees and hopes to retain as many as possible with the move, but Pettersen added the company will also look to hire new employees.

“We’re excited to make the move and plan to be there by the end of the year,” she said.
