MADISON, WI. NOV. 17, 2020Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) deputy secretary and chief operating officer Sam Rikkers presented the Excellence in Services Award to Woodville-based OEM Fabricators at the German American Business Awards, hosted by the German American Chamber of Commerce, recently.

OEM is a leading contract manufacturer that specializes in supporting German companies in the U.S. To the benefit of these customers, OEM has obtained European certifications, aligned processes to those of Europe and completed cultural and language training. With this specific expertise, OEM can thus operate as a superior contract manufacturer in the localization process for German companies starting production in America.

“OEM Fabricators is honored and excited to receive the Excellence in Service Award. We’d like to thank the German-American community and our team members at OEM for our success in serving German businesses,” says Christian Gausman, the company’s director of strategic initiatives.

WEDC has maintained a highly involved relationship with the GACC, and Germany remains a key source of its foreign direct investment projects as well as Wisconsin’s fifth-largest export  destination. This award illustrates the mutual strength and quality in manufacturing along with a shared emphasis on quality, productivity and strong work ethic.

“OEM Fabricators has been extremely dedicated in their efforts to serve German companies in the U.S. Their success illustrates the strength of their work given the demanding nature of German manufacturers,” said WEDC Vice President of Global Trade and Investment Katy Sinnott. “WEDC congratulates OEM Fabricators on their Excellence in Services Award.”

OEM also recently participated in WEDC’s virtual trade venture that connected Wisconsin companies with potential business partners in Germany. WEDC’s Global Trade Ventures include a personalized market assessment, which highlights market conditions and information on competitors and identifies potential distributors, end users and customers for the company’s specific offerings. This customized matchmaking allows Wisconsin companies to get their innovative products to overseas customers that need them while fostering global business connections and aiding Wisconsin’s economy in the process.
