At the Center of Where You Want to Be

Accessible Interstates and Highways

In addition to Interstate 39, a north-south route that connects Wisconsin to the world, local businesses rely upon the divided U.S. 51 and Wisconsin 29 to move shipments safely and reliably. These are well-maintained highways that provide plenty of capacity all year long.

Takeoff From Central Wisconsin

Central Wisconsin Airport (KCWA) has multiple daily airline flights to Chicago, Detroit and Minneapolis/St. Paul, with runways that can accommodate corporate jets and ILS approaches for safe travel in all weather. Each of our five counties also have one or more general aviation airports.

Working on the Railroad?

Rail shippers will appreciate the regular service offered by Canadian National and the customer-focused short line of the G&W-owned Tomahawk Railway. The line allows businesses to ship faster, further and more cost-effectively, connecting three North American coasts in the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico.

Sites & Buildings

The Center has business spaces to fit a variety of industries that range from urban locations to wide open spaces. We also offer tax benefits and incentives to make the most of your investment.
