Menomonie steel company wins bid for Foxconn project

Menomonie (WQOW) – A Menomonie company will be part of the Foxconn project in Racine County, after winning a construction contract.

Red Cedar Steel Erectors Inc. is known for steel work for Anderson Windows and Mayo Clinic Health System in Menomonie. The company will be placing columns, beams, joints and more for Foxconn’s multipurpose building in Racine County.

On Wednesday, Red Cedar Steel officials were commended for their winning bid. They are one of 150 companies benefiting from Foxconn’s investment in Wisconsin.

“We’re thrilled to be out at Foxconn, to be there, to be there up front early in the project,” said Peter Hayes, president of Red Cedar Steel Erectors Inc. “Really, this is the first deal erection to go on onsite. So, we’re very excited to be there, and be a part of the project.”

Officials with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and Wisconsin Department of Administration (WDA) said so far the Wisconsin impact for contractors and subcontractors includes 26 counties and 68 communities. Officials said they are only one percent finished celebrating winning contracts with bidding companies.

Red Cedar Steel started work on Wednesday. Twelve workers will be in Racine County for a month. Hayes said the company plans to continue bidding for Foxconn projects as development in Racine County continues.
