North Mendota Energy and Technology Park


Located less than 10 minutes north of Madison, the Westport/Waunakee area has a small-town appeal accompanied by quick access to all of the amenities of the Wisconsin’s capital city. Part of the North Lake Mendota region, the Town of Westport has a population of about 4,000, while the neighboring Village of Waunakee has about 13,000 residents and has doubled its population since 1990. With eight nearby colleges and universities—including the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Edgewood College, and Madison College—the two communities boast a highly educated workforce that sustains and attracts worldclass employers. Endres Manufacturing, Uniek Plastics, Nord Drivesystems, Suttle-Straus, Scientific Protein Laboratories, and Kerry Ingredients all benefit from operational facilities in the area. Westport and Waunakee also offer a quality of life that is ideal for families, with more than a dozen municipal parks and several nearby county and state recreational areas, including Governor Dodge State Park. In 2015, Waunakee was named one of the top 10 communities for families in the U.S. by Family Circle magazine. The North Mendota Energy and Technology Park consists of 33 acres of contiguous buildable land over a 57-acre site located on the northwest corner of state Highway 133 and West River Road in Westport. The site is five miles away from I-94 and I-90/39 and has a Wisconsin & Southern Railroad line that runs along the western boundary. The park also is five minutes away from the Dane County Regional Airport, and Madison Gas & Electric has a substation directly across the southwest boundary of the site.
