“Receiving this award is truly an honor, amongst the many businesses in our region. I always had a vision over the past several years, to expand on the West Avenue/Green Bay St vacant property, once owned by our neighboring business. Thru growth in our industry, growth within our operations, and hard work and dedication from our team, we achieved our goal, expanding 32,400 sq ft on the property, tying in to our existing operation. Within the walls of the expansion, are robotics that are fueled by artificial intelligence, used to enhance our processes and quality within our Door Division, so that our Coulee Region Employee base at Badger, can continue to serve our customers not only in the La Crosse market, but the upper Midwest. We are fortunate to be an employment provider to over 230 jobs in the La Crosse community. “ – Brian Mlsna, President / CEO
