Dane Checolinski column: There are many success stories in Sheboygan

This is an exciting time for Sheboygan County as new opportunities for growth continue to surface. I am delighted to highlight several local companies experiencing tremendous success. As front-runners of economic development, these businesses are models for growth and exemplify exceptional leadership qualities.
Just recently, American Orthodontics held its global headquarters ribbon-cutting event at its new state-of-the-art, 280,000-square-foot facility. A.O. is the largest privately held orthodontics manufacturer in the world, with more than 90% of their products made right here in Sheboygan. The company employs 450 locally (more than 600 worldwide) and has not once experienced layoffs in its 45 years of existence. Displaying consistent sales growth every year since 1968, American Orthodontics typifies business growth for Sheboygan County.
Similarly, Glacier Transit and Storage is currently expanding in Plymouth to accommodate increasing customer demands for storage. The company’s $6 million project, expected to be complete in June, will add nearly 90,000 square feet dedicated to refrigerated food warehousing while also creating an additional seven jobs. Founded in 1955, Glacier Transit and Storage has grown from one warehouse to twelve, utilizing over 580,000 square feet. The company attributes its successful growth to incorporating best practices, excellent customer care that exceeds expectations and having the best, most experienced staff in the industry.
Finally, Vollrath Company’s expansion is expected to be completed in July. This $4.5 million project will create 158,000 square feet of distribution space. Within the past four years, the company has doubled in size, adding 700 employees expanding its product lines. After 138 years of successful growth, the Vollrath Company certainly is a model of business growth in Sheboygan County.
These examples are only a few of the many success stories of our local businesses. However, each and every company displaying business growth has the same fundamentals in place: strong leadership, brilliant ingenuity and dynamic teamwork. Sheboygan County is truly blessed to have a tremendous amount of businesses displaying these qualities.
With many value-added services offered to businesses big and small, the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) serves both as a catalyst and consultant.
We allow companies to spend more time doing what they do best. I encourage everyone to visit our website at www.SheboyganCountyEDC.com to get a better picture of the support and assistance we provide for our area businesses.
Likewise, I encourage every business, entrepreneur, developer, or inventor to give us a call to see how we can provide timely, value-added assistance toward your planned investment in Sheboygan County.

This is an exciting time for Sheboygan County as new opportunities for growth continue to surface. I am delighted to highlight several local companies experiencing tremendous success. As front-runners of economic development, these businesses are models for growth and exemplify exceptional leadership qualities.
