If your business is looking to make its mark in Milwaukee, trust Parcel2Go to be on hand to take care of all your express delivery needs.
Milwaukee, the largest city in the American state of Wisconsin, is a major cultural and economic centre, covering an area of almost 97 square miles, which for many years was the beer-producing capital of the country.
This dates from the 1850s, when its founders realised that its location, at the confluence of Lake Michigan and several other major rivers, made it an ideal site for a port, and that its plentiful water supply was favourable for brewing beer.
This convenient location was a major factor in its subsequent development as an important manufacturing base. The city, therefore, has an industrial landscape, in whose midst live more than 600,000 people, making it the United States’ 23rd largest.
No fewer than 13 of Fortune magazine’s 1,000 largest companies are based in Milwaukee. They include such well-known names as Harley Davidson, GE Healthcare, Rockwell Automation and major car component manufacturer Johnson Controls. Of the four breweries once considered to rank among the world’s largest which were based here, only one – Miller Brewing Company – survives, but it still employs more than 2,200 workers.
At 22 per cent, the proportion of Milwaukee residents working in manufacturing is second only behind San Jose, California in all of the United States. However, it has now been overtaken by healthcare as the largest employment sector in the region.
Financial services businesses also have a strong presence in the Milwaukee region, with a number specialising in manufacturing payment processing equipment.
The city is one of the first in the United States to enjoy full wireless coverage, and an initiative undertaken by the city in conjunction with Midwest Fiber Networks means that city residents have unlimited internet access for a flat monthly fee – a first such scheme for the country.
