CREC Holds Focus Groups in Lakeshore, Wisconsin

May 14, 2015

Martin Romitti, joined by Erik Pages of Entreworks, traveled to Wisconsin to hold a series of manufacturing focus groups to identify new supply chain and market opportnities within the state’s Lakeshore region.

The Lakeshore region which encompasses Mantiwoc, Kewanuee, Calumet, Sheboygan, and Door counties, is one of the nation’s most manufacturing intensive.

Value chains describe which industries purchase from which other industries. These value chain patterns can help to narrow policy makers’ attention to a few key “driver industries” representing the core of important industry clusters within the regional economy.
