Using a state program, Gross Automation was one of eight Wisconsin companies to set up trade deals with South Korea and Japan. Owner Bob Gross noted that this new business would significantly benefit his company, which makes a variety of electrical components that are sent to businesses all over the state.
Gross was featured in a video that aired on CBS 58, WDJT – Milwaukee and discussed how the state program was opening doors for Wisconsin industry. In the video, Gross says right now, international sales make up about 8 percent of his sales, but he expects that to double that after taking a trip to South Korea and Japan to set up deals with foreign companies.
“My business is increasing dramatically because of this. It’s something that allows us to benefit them,” Gross said.
