UWEBC Member Greenheck Named Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year... Again!

UWEBC member company, Greenheck was recently selected as the 2012 Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year. Greenheck, with corporate headquarters in Schofield, Wisconsin, is a global manufacturer of air movement and control equipment.

This is the second time that Greenheck has received the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year Award in the Mega Category which includes the state’s largest corporations. The first time the company won this prestigious honor was in 2004; Greenheck also won a Special Recognition Award for Sustained Excellence in the 2001 competition for Manufacturer of the Year.

“Being selected manufacturer of the year from among so many outstanding Wisconsin manufacturers makes a strong statement about the teamwork, creativity, and dedication of our employees,”stated Jim McIntyre, president and CEO of The Greenheck Group.

While many companies adopted a “hunker down” strategy during the latest economic downturn, Greenheck’s management team embraced an “aggressive growth” strategy. The company continued to invest in new product development, state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and technology, and focused on “being the easiest company to do business with”. The aggressive growth strategy involved employees and business partners in a total team effort to drive growth and build for the future in a down economy.

A big factor in Greenheck’s success in recent years has been its ability to increase market share, even during challenging economic times, by expanding sales channels through several subsidiary operations, and by growing international sales. The collective efforts of all the employees has helped the company enjoy significant growth, and increase the workforce to pre-recession employment levels.

With annual sales exceeding $550 million, Greenheck Fan Corporation employs more than 2,500 employees worldwide, including nearly 1,800 in Wisconsin.
