Wisconsin is a state that makes things. Manufacturing is one of our largest industries, employing hundreds of thousands of people. Among them are engineers, the people who design products and the equipment needed to manufacture them. Today, that process often involves looking at ways of RE-manufacturing products rather than starting from scratch.
