A total of 23 land parcels along Braun Road to be demolished are included in the bid award. Gueligs Waste Removal is not the only local business taking part in the Foxconn project. In early May, Brownsville-based Michels Corporation was announced as one of 27 businesses in-state subcontractors selected for the first of phase of Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park’s development that resulted in $100 million in contracts.
The Foxconn plant “will produce ultra-high-definition flat screens equipped to process the lightning-fast 5G internet connections that are expected to be rolled out in the next few years,” according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The Office of the Governor states that the facility will be one of the “largest manufacturing campuses in the world,” at 20 million square feet. It’s projected to employ 13,000 people once open, with 22,000 “indirect and induced jobs” created throughout the state. A total of 10,000 people are estimated to work on the project, with 6,000 jobs supported indirectly during the process. While $10 billion in capital investment is required, at least $7 billion is expected in economic impact on the state annually.
Annually generated state and local tax revenues are expected to be $181 million, according to estimates done by Ernst & Young provided by the governor’s office.
