FOXCONN Decision Is A Game Changer for Commercial Construction Industry

This move by FoxConn will provide a degree of prolonged construction sustainability never witnessed in our area.

The recent decision by FoxConn to create a manufacturing facility in Southeastern Wisconsin will serve to be a true game changer for commercial construction in Southeastern Wisconsin.

With an anticipated 20 million square feet of potential construction planned, this move by FoxConn will provide enormous momentum (BIG Mo) and a degree of prolonged construction sustainability never witnessed in our area. Mike Fabishak, CEO of the Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee stated that, “Kudos to Governor Walker and his able team for securing this extraordinary project. Along with the economic development and manufacturing employment benefits, the construction of this mega-facility will catapult construction employment to a level never before seen in this area.”

Additionally, the ancillary new businesses and service providers that are sure to flock to the FoxConn project will bring additional opportunities for the commercial construction industry. Mr. Fabishak added, “I anticipate that current local construction companies will become larger, and new ones will be created. The pie just got a lot bigger with this extraordinary news.”

The Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee is the largest commercial construction trade association in the State and serves the Southeastern Wisconsin area. It represents over 400 general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and service providers.
