The Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) held its annual Focus on the Future Awards on Friday, September 24, 2021, at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee. The event shone the spotlight on five categories for business improvement: Talent, Growth, Livability, Equity and Innovation. Gross Automation LLC was honored to be nominated in the Growth category. While we didn’t win (this year), our congratulations go out to the Wisconsin Center District for their plans to expand conventions to the Milwaukee area. Sharing the distinction with both the Wisconsin Center District and the other finalist PartsBadger LLC, was a very proud moment for our team.
Gross Automation LLC was primarily nominated for our partnership with the German manufacturer, EKS – Engel. That same partnership awarded us the Governor’s Export Award in 2020. Gross Automation LLC, in collaboration with the German-American Chamber of Commerce, EKS Engel and the potential purchaser, UW – Stevens Point, worked together, alongside a group of students, to install the PE Light on campus.
As Gross Automation continues to focus on our future, growing at a staggering scale, we do not anticipate this being our only shot at this prestigious trophy. We look forward to focusing on our next run in 2022!
