The Milwaukee Region may be best known for brats, beer and cheese, but our ideal location in the Upper Midwest, an excellent transportation system and a tradition of innovation help us bring a lot more to the table.

Every day, millions of people worldwide pack their lunches, snacks and leftovers in the Ziploc bags produced by S.C. Johnson Company, which also manufacturers Glade air fresheners, Pledge furniture polishes and Off insect repellents. Millions of others slip into a pair of Allen-Edmonds’ sleek and comfortable, hand-crafted leather shoes or pamper themselves with the comfortable leisure wear of Jockey International.

The Milwaukee Region is home to the legendary rumble of Harley-Davidson motorcycles; BRP North America’s outboard engines; and the high-performance bicycles of Trek Bicycle Corporation, which is based in nearby Waterloo, Wisconsin.

When it comes time to relax, nothing beats the refreshing taste of a cold beer from MillerCoors or a tasty Italian sausage or bratwurst from Klement’s Sausage Company or Usinger’s Famous Sausage, as well as meat products from Patrick Cudahy and Cargill.

The Milwaukee Region also produces many of the ingredients you use in or on your favorite foods, including Kikkomen soy sauce and Nestle cocoa, semi-sweet or milk-chocolate morsels. We even make the stainless steel cookware you need to whip up your favorite recipe – at Regal Ware – and the InSinkErator garbage disposer – to clean up when you’re done.
