Filters to create cleaner air
When ULT AG, a German leader in high-efficiency industrial air filtration and dust collectors, began to look for a North America location, Wisconsin quickly rose to the top of the list. In addition to the cultural and economic ties between Germany and Wisconsin and the existing presence of German companies here, the company’s decision was aided by assistance from WEDC and the Milwaukee 7 regional economic development organization. These organizations helped ULT AG executives make connections in Wisconsin and get acclimated, including helping the company find a site for its facility and helping executives determine where they would live.
Wisconsin offers the total package
ULT AG designs and manufactures products used by many industries, including medical, pharmaceutical, electronic and general manufacturing. ULT also offers solutions for process air drying and cleaning, as well as custom-built units for special applications. Over the last two decades, the company has grown to employ more than 100 people in Bautzen, Germany. It is currently undertaking its fifth expansion within Germany, adding 16,000 square feet of space this year. Its facility in Mequon will initially serve as a sales office before ULT adds functions and hires additional staff over the next three years.
