Abundant transportation options and close access to a large customer and supplier base
Our two-county region offers an ideal location. A population of nearly 75,000,000 is reachable within a 500-mile radius. We have available industrial sites near state and interstate highways in both counties, allowing easy access to major metropolitan markets.
Located midway between Milwaukee and Madison, plus Chicago and Minneapolis/St. Paul on the Midwest’s High-Tech IQ corridor, Jefferson County sits between Dane and Waukesha, two of the wealthiest counties in the state, with Interstate 94 and WI Highway 26 running through it. In Walworth County, just to the west, Interstate 43 runs through the central portion of Walworth County. US Highway 12 cuts diagonally across the county, all providing access to Interstates 90/39 and 94.
Whitewater offers easy access to Milwaukee, Chicago, Madison, and Minneapolis/St. Paul, at a cost significantly less than any one of those cities. Cut your costs and improve your reach in our region.
