Northeast Wisconsin Manufacturers:
The secret to growth and new customers is in your own backyard!











Fifty-six percent of businesses responding to our Supply Chain Analysis survey to date stated they do little or no local purchasing. Yet, 100% of respondents would like to purchase more products/supplies closer to home.

These initial findings prove there are new supply chain opportunities to be had by manufacturers in Northeast Wisconsin.
We’d like to thank everyone who has already given us their input via our Supply Chain Analysis survey!

Haven’t taken the 5-minute survey yet? We hope you’ll consider giving us your input. When completed, the findings will help you identify new business opportunities as a supplier in local value chains or in selling your products/services in new markets.

Take the Survey!

We are very excited about this project and hope you will take the time to share your insights with us. Thank you for taking the survey and for helping to make Wisconsin a great place to do business!
