CWIMA Facebook

Manufacturers in Central Wisconsin currently face global disruptions to the supply chain on top of the Northwoods labor shortage.

The Central Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance is very familiar with these issues. It’s a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting career opportunities in the machining, welding, fabrication and manufacturing related trades.

Listen to the full interview with Executive Director Tait Strand to learn more about the scholarships and workforce development opportunities the organization has in place to attract workers.

WXPR’s Nonprofits of the Northwoods spotlights organizations in our area that are working to strengthen the community – whether that’s by lending a hand to someone in need, educating about the arts or caring for the environment.
