March 5, 2008

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has launched Wisconsin’s Next Generation Manufacturing Plan, a plan that focuses on efficiency and lean manufacturing principles. The plan will target $85 million in existing and new tax credits to leverage $1.6 billion in private capital investment, creating 5,000 new jobs and training 4,000 workers for the jobs of tomorrow.

“To remain competitive, our manufacturers must continue to become leaner and more efficient,” the Governor said. Main plan objectives include making manufacturers more competitive, expanding lean manufacturing, and creating tax credits that invest in the future of the industry.
