BLACK RIVER FALLS – Governor Scott Walker today joined Foxconn and their construction manager Gilbane Building Company and M+W Group (M+W | Gilbane) at Hoffman Construction Company in Black River Falls, Michels Corporation in Brownsville, and CNH Industrial in Racine for the announcement of $100 million in contracts with Wisconsin subcontractors and suppliers located throughout the state.

“Today we are seeing more of the Foxconn Bonus throughout Wisconsin,” said Governor Walker. “It is clear that Foxconn is putting Wisconsin first with its 27 selected in-state subcontractors for Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park’s first phase of development. It is great to see Wisconsin businesses and working families from all over our state benefitting from this historic investment.”

Foxconn and its construction manager, M+W | Gilbane in partnership with government, has created a custom economic inclusion and diversity plan to place Wisconsin first in the development and building of Foxconn’s advanced display manufacturing facilities in Mount Pleasant.

The 27 Wisconsin subcontractors will work to prepare the Foxconn site for construction. At the peak of development, 150 pieces of heavy earth moving equipment sourced from across the state will move more than 1 million cubic yards of earth per month. An estimated 70,000 truckloads of aggregate, or gravel, also will be delivered to the site, primarily from New Berlin, Sussex, Waterford, and Racine.

The Wisconsin subcontractors and suppliers for the initial site preparation are:

  • Hoffman Construction Company, Mass Excavation, Storm Water Management, Erosion Control (Black River Falls)
  • Michels Corporation, Aggregate and Underdrain (Brownsville)
  • W. Oakes and Sons, Aggregate and Earthwork (Racine)

  • Quick Fuel Fleet Services, Fuel (Milwaukee)
  • Gestra Engineering, Soils Testing Work (Milwaukee) – Minority Owned Business
  • Terracon, Soils Testing Work (Franklin)
  • Pac-Van, Support Trailers (Sturtevant)

With up to 13,000 jobs and a capital investment up to $10 billion, Foxconn’s investment in Wisconsin is by far the state’s largest economic development project and is the largest corporate attraction project in U.S. history, as measured by jobs.

Once fully operational, Foxconn is expected to make $4.26 billion in supplier purchases annually, about one-third of which will be sourced in Wisconsin. The project is expected to have at least a $7 billion annual economic impact on the state and generate between $116-$157 million in state tax revenues annually, once fully operational.
