APPLETON, WI. JULY 18, 2018 – Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Secretary Mark R. Hogan and Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) Secretary Ellen Nowak highlighted the statewide reach and benefits of Foxconn’s $10 billion investment in Wisconsin today by visiting The Boldt Company in Appleton.

The Boldt Company is one of the eight prime contractors for construction of a Multipurpose Building in Phase 1 of Area 1 of the Wisconn Valley Science & Technology Park in Mount Pleasant.

“It has been less than two months since construction began on Foxconn’s campus and already the benefits are reaching every corner of the state,” Secretary Hogan said. “The Boldt Company will be a critical component of this construction process by providing the installation of the architectural package. I thank The Boldt Company for being a part of this historic project and I look forward to the family-supporting jobs this project will create.”

“With a legacy of more than a century in Wisconsin and a reputation as a national leader among professional construction service firms, The Boldt Company is an excellent example of one of the many Wisconsin companies chosen for this historic project,” Secretary Nowak said. “The contract awarded to The Boldt Company is reflective of the positive economic impact that Foxconn is bringing to every part of the state.”

“It is with great pride that we will be involved in the exciting Wisconn Valley Science & Technology Park project,” said Tom Boldt, CEO of the company. “Today, it is our pleasure to host Ellen Nowak, Secretary, Wisconsin Department of Administration and Mark Hogan, Secretary and CEO, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to celebrate our involvement and the beginning of this monumental investment in Wisconsin’s future.”

The Boldt Company, headquartered in Appleton, has more than 2,000 employees and 13 offices throughout the United States. They are one of the leading sustainable construction firms in the country with other Wisconsin facilities in Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, Waukesha and Stevens Point.

The company was founded in 1889, when Martin Boldt opened his carpentry shop in Appleton. Today, that little shop has grown into one of the largest professional construction firms in the nation.

The 130-year-old company provides professional construction services to customers in a variety of industrial, education, healthcare, commercial and energy markets nationwide.
