October is Manufacturing Month

By Portage County Business Council

Portage County Business Council has over 30 members representing the Manufacturing sector. We celebrate them and all of the other manufacturers in Wisconsin!

Manufacturing employs the largest amount of workers in the state of Wisconsin and is responsible for 19% of the state’s output, totaling nearly $50 billion.

Due to the strength of the manufacturing industry there is vast need for education, training and employment related to this field. WMC is taking the month of October to promote various events, educational opportunities and celebrations for manufacturing in Wisconsin. Visit for more details on events happening around the state, and stay connected with @WisconsinMC on twitter to find out more facts about manufacturing and how it is impacting the state of Wisconsin.
