Hello Investors, Partners & Friends,
As the temperatures outside finally begin to warm up, business activity in the Fox Cities Region remains hot! Last week, for example, our team met with a company in Outagamie County that has virtually seen double-digit growth every year since it was founded more than 30 years ago. As their business expanded, so did their workforce, growing from 48 to 253 employees in the last seven years alone. The company reached out to the Fox Cities Regional Partnership (FCRP) as it begins to consider an aggressive expansion project to increase their production and storage space, and create more jobs in our community. This is encouraging news, since the company also operates a facility in another state.
Another expansion project on our radar screen that continues to move forward involves an innovative company in Winnebago County, which is in the process of expanding its R&D capabilities to grow its sales network. With their plans for growth, they will need to expand their physical footprint - as well as new jobs - in the Fox Cities.
As we continue to assist employers expand and create new jobs in the Fox Cities, FCRP remains committed to helping local companies fill existing job openings as well. We’re excited to officially open registration for this year’s Talent Upload – our award-winning, talent recruitment program. If you or a company you know is looking for engineers, computer science or IT talent, let’s connect!
All My Best,
Vice President, Economic Development
