Bulmann Dock & Lift (Bulmann) will create and retain 30 jobs as a result of their $1.7 million expansion. Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) has worked in partnership with Wilson Township and Bulmann to assess their needs and help them make this investment.

Construction is moving quickly on their new building next to their current facility. This new space will allow Bulmann to make room for manufacturing modernization to keep them more competitive in their industry.

“It has been a pleasure working with the NLEA and they have helped us greatly in expanding our business,” said Steve Bulmann, owner/production of Bulmann Dock & Lift. “We are excited about the future as we continue to grow our business and create additional career opportunities that enable the means to a better quality of life for our team members.”

Projects like this one often come to light as a result of retention visits with our area companies where we hear first-hand their needs and where they would like to grow.
