Foxconn general contractors give presentation in Rhinelander

Posted:
RHINELANDER, Wis. (WAOW) -

Representatives from construction companies gathered in the northwoods Friday afternoon to see how, and if they could play a role in the Foxconn development.

The $10 billion campus is set to be built in Racine county over the next several years.
    
Representatives from Gilbane and M+W Group, the Foxconn general contractors, presented a general timeline and goals for the development. 

That includes keeping the project Wisconsin-based. They're looking to partner with contractors, builders, and suppliers from the state to submit bids for the multi-phased construction project.

"In the weeks and months to come some activity will start onsite. But what I'm most proud of is we're out in front early to communicate how to get involved," said Adam Jelen, Senior Vice President of Gilbane. "This project is not successful unless we move the community forward from workforce and business, and that's all across the state."

Many business owners in attendance expressed interest and excitement about the project.

The presentation comes to Wausau Monday, April 15.
