Wisconsin Supplies the World
Wisconsin businesses ship high quality products all around the world. In 2009, Wisconsin shipped over $16.7 billion worth of products to other countries. Known as "America's Dairyland" for our milk and cheese products, our #1 export industry is actually heavy machinery. Located at the center of North America, but connected to global markets by Great Lakes ports and efficient intermodal connections, we are primed to deliver the goods on time anywhere in the world.
We welcome the opportunity to provide you with the products and services you need, and look forward to creating and expanding cultural, commercial, educational, and community relationships with people around the world. Our state is blessed with abundant natural resources and a highly-skilled labor force. Wisconsinites are known for their tremendous work ethic and attention to detail. A National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) supplier tells us they "literally looked the world over" for the best stainless steel fabricators – and found them in a small community in Wisconsin. Let us help you find what you're looking for.
