The Move to Manufacturing program is a partnership among Greenheck, Linetec, Crystal Finishing Systems, Wausau Window & Wall and Northcentral Technical College. The number of manufacturing industry jobs in central Wisconsin is 169 percent above the national average, making it the top growing industry in central Wisconsin with 30,000+ current jobs in manufacturing in central Wisconsin alone, according to NTC.

“If you are in search of an opportunity to improve your standard of living, Move to Manufacturing is an excellent path,” said Scott Graf, vice president of manufacturing, sourcing and logistics at Greenheck, in a NTC news release. “There is absolutely no risk to you while you explore what the area’s top manufacturers have to offer.”
