Dodge County, Wisconsin and surrounding area manufacturers are taking action to promote the availability of family supporting jobs available in the manufacturing trades. The recently formed Manufacturing Business Alliance of greater Dodge County is gaining momentum with aggressive activities to address the skills gap and now has the highest membership since its inception two years ago.

Pam Korth, Manager of Human Resources at Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation and current Chairperson of the Manufacturing Alliance commented, “This alliance was created out of need. The labor pool for skilled trades is too small in the area, which is saturated with manufacturers. We can’t grow our companies by hiring away labor from each other. We needed to increase the pool.”
