Brookfield, Wis. – Wolter, Inc. has been named a 2023 Future 50 company by BizTimes Media in partnership with the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce.
The Future 50 program, now in its 34th year, recognizes privately-owned companies in the Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.
“We’re excited to recognize this year’s group of Future 50 winners. These companies are creating jobs and fueling the growth of our region,” said Dan Meyer, publisher, and owner of BizTimes Media. “As the region’s only locally owned business media company, we’re proud to provide an objective measure of southeastern Wisconsin’s fastest growing companies.”
Together, the 50 companies have projected 5,269 employees and $3.96 billion in annual sales for 2023, an increase of more than 60% on both measures. This growth isn’t just fast, it is impressive.
“Our growth has been exponential over the last few years, with a strategic plan in place that included an annual growth of 10%, both organically and through acquisition,” explains Jerry Weidmann, President of Wolter. “This growth is in part by the 6 acquisitions we have made in the last three years, bringing us from a two-state territory to a seven-state territory.”
“Through these acquisitions, we have brought many talented individuals under the Wolter brand and many more diverse product offerings.”
Established by the MMAC in 1988, the Future 50 program recognizes the fastest-growing, privately owned companies in the eight-county southeastern Wisconsin area that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth. There is no age limit for companies to participate. There is also now no limit to the number of years a company can be a Future 50 winner, because it’s vital for the growth of our region to have companies continue to innovate, reinvent, and grow.
