Future 50 companies build the Milwaukee economy


Take a close look at the 2019 class of Future 50 companies, and it’s not hard to see how important they are, collectively, to the metro Milwaukee economy.

These firms are building Milwaukee and building in Milwaukee. Of the 50, 12 are manufacturers (carrying on Milwaukee’s traditional economic backbone) and 10 are in construction, in a region that has no shortage of construction projects. There are also 8 business/professional services firms and 6 information technology firms in the group.

Together, these 50 companies have 3,291 employees and expect total revenue of more than $1.1 billion in 2019. That revenue total is 22% higher than the 2018 revenues of last year’s Future 50 class.

The annual Future 50 program recognizes companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been rapidly growing. To qualify for the award, a company must be headquartered in the region; be independently owned; have been in business for at least three years; and demonstrate strong growth in revenue and employment. There is no age limit for the companies, since companies can innovate and reinvent themselves at any time.

A company can receive the Future 50 award up to three times.

The Future 50 winners will receive their awards at a luncheon program on Friday, Sept. 20, at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. For more information or to register, visit biztimes.com/future50.

BizTimes Milwaukee is the media sponsor of the Future 50 program.

The Future 50 program was created by MMAc’s Council of Small Business Executives to recognize top local firms that are growing in revenue and employment.
