About Lake Area


Madison’s business backbone is agriculture with strong footholds in the technology and manufacturing industries. You may find your business has the same needs as others in the Madison area. We work with our companies to find partners to strengthen their current businesses and offerings. If your company has needs, they may mirror those of existing businesses allowing for an agreement to share services from available companies.

Regarding existing supply chains, local companies order product by the truckload on a daily basis. Some of these products include sheet metal, plastics, fertilizer, hoses and lumber.

Madison has existing companies that may help meet your manufacturing needs in metal plating, powder coating, welding, mold injection, machining and more.
