And with a backlog that has doubled over the last three months, plans are underway for yet another expansion.
Founded in 1992, Wisconsin Metal Tech began their venture into the manufacturing industry by bridging the gap between material vendors and potential customers.

Wisconsin Metal Techs first building in Richfield

Then In 2002, they expanded, adding the first 8,000 square ft. addition. This new addition gave Wisconsin Metal Tech the ability to offer centerless grinding and bar grinding services. Also in addition to saw-cutting parts for its customers. By 2007, Wisconsin Metal Tech expanded its capabilities even further by adding two CNC machines and rotary bending services. And in 2013, the second 8,000 square foot addition was added to keep up with the increasing workload.
Wisconsin Metal Tech has made a name for themselves in the metals manufacturing industry by consistently meeting their customers’ needs. This expanding business means they are looking to hire two more machinists to continue driving the productivity they are known for. Their increasing customer base can be attributed to the combined efforts of their new industry veteran outside salesman. Existing customers referring their colleagues, and new digital marketing efforts.
“What I find most rewarding is that we are able to assess our customer’s current state and find ways to improve their business and make their lives easier,” stated Heinze. “We are consistently asking questions like, ‘how can we do it better than our competitors’, and ‘what can we bring to the table so that our customers don’t need to look for it elsewhere?’ We are always looking for ways to help our customers be better off.”
