We cannot thank our hardworking team enough; this month is dedicated to you and your counterparts throughout the state!
In the state of Wisconsin, manufacturing remains the state’s top industry and will be largely celebrated through the month of October.
According to Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) reporting, manufacturing is the number one contributor to Wisconsin’s booming economy, producing more than $63 billion in total output in 2018 – 19 percent of Wisconsin’s total Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Additionally, the state’s more than 9,000 manufacturers employed nearly 475,000 people in 2018 – nearly 1 in 5 workers in Wisconsin.
“Our state’s rich manufacturing heritage is well-known throughout the world, but it is the industry’s future that is now sparking international attention,” said WMC President & CEO Kurt R. Bauer. “Thirty years ago, the industry was viewed as dumb, dirty and dangerous. Today, it is high-tech, high-skill and high-paying.”
Here in Sheboygan County the majority of our privately-owned companies are well-known brand names throughout the globe! We are greatly appreciative of the amount of manufacturing that occurs within our county lines!
