Greenheck Group, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of air movement, control and conditioning equipment with corporate headquarters and several manufacturing facilities in Schofield, Wisconsin, was selected as the 2019 Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year in Milwaukee on Thursday, February 20 by an independent panel of judges sponsored by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC), Michael Best, and Baker Tilly. This is the fourth time the company has received the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year award in the Mega Category where the state’s largest corporations compete. Greenheck was also recognized for this prestigious award in 2004, 2012 and 2016.
“We strive every day for continuous improvement and to be the easiest company to do business with,” said Jim McIntyre, president and CEO of Greenheck Group. “Earning the prestigious Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year award is an amazing honor and it is all because of the extraordinary contributions made every day by our employees and business partners all over the world. We know there are many outstanding manufacturers in Wisconsin, and to be recognized is especially humbling.”
Due to its dedicated employee base, strong sales partners and suppliers, and continued product innovation to meet changing customer needs, annual sales at Greenheck Group have increased by 25% over the past three years. Consequently, the company has expanded and upgraded facilities at its headquarters in Schofield, Wisconsin and opened two new campuses in Shelby, North Carolina and Tulsa, Oklahoma this past year.
“Bob Greenheck, cofounder of Greenheck Group with his brother Bernie, has always said ‘Innovate or Perish.’ He set a high bar for the company and we reach for it every day by continuously reinvesting in our employees, plants, and products,” McIntyre said.
Greenheck Group has also been recognized the past four years as Wisconsin’s Best Place to Work for Young Professionals and was named one of Forbes’ America’s Best Midsized Employers in 2019.
