Construction-related firms highlight 2018 Future 50 list

Record number from industry to be honored

As a building and development boom continues in southeastern Wisconsin construction-related firms once again make up a major portion of the Future 50 companies, honored annually by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce and its Council of Small Business Executives.

This year, 14 of the Future 50 companies are construction-related firms, a record for that industry in the awards program’s history. The number of construction firms in the Future 50 has been gaining in recent years. Last year there were 12, in 2016 there were nine.

Construction work on the new arena in downtown Milwaukee.

“The Future 50 are a great gauge of where the region is today and where it’s headed,” said Stephanie Hall, COSBE’s executive director. “From the downtown arena and high rises to suburban mixed-use projects, these companies are riding the wave of new development. And with construction on Foxconn and the Haribo plants beginning soon, this trend shows no signs of slowing down in the near future.”

The annual Future 50 program, now in its 31st year, recognizes companies in the seven-county Milwaukee Region that have been rapidly growing. To qualify for the award, a company must be headquartered in the seven-county Milwaukee Region and be independently-owned; have been in business for at least three years; and demonstrate strong growth in revenue and employment. There is no age limit for the companies, since companies can innovate and reinvent themselves at any time.

A company can receive the Future 50 award up to three times.

The winners of the Future 50 will receive their awards at a luncheon program on Friday, Sept. 21, at The Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. BizTimes Milwaukee is the media sponsor of the Future 50 program. Click here to register.

  1. The Sheriff says:

    The building boom continues for a region who keeps losing population. You can’t build a region to prosperity.

    Developers keep saying they are building based on demand and yet with every new building they claim they need govt assistance to make it “financially viable”

    What a house of cards and this one is going to crash harder than Kevin Spacey
