The Waukesha County Manufacturing Alliance serves as a platform for manufacturers to share ideas, encourage innovation, work together to transform the image of manufacturing and target new talent. The Manufacturing Alliance was formed in 2010 in response to the critical needs of our manufacturers, who account for 20% of industry — or 1 in 5 jobs — in Waukesha County.
Here are some programs of the Manufacturing Alliance:
- Manufacturing Executive Council – Comprised of manufacturing leaders who set the strategic direction for the Manufacturing Alliance, this group works to raise the profile of manufacturing in Waukesha County, share best practices and attract a talented pipeline of skilled labor.
- OpEx tours – Company and operation leaders tour area manufacturers to share best practices, offer leadership level learning opportunities and foster a strong manufacturing environment in southeast Wisconsin.
- HREx programs – An opportunity to share best practices with other manufacturing human resources professionals from around Waukesha County.
