"After meeting with local representatives we knew this is where we wanted to be", said Tom Hemmer, CEO of Solomon Corporation.

“We knew we wanted to go into the region and considered multiple locations in the upper Midwest before choosing Wisconsin. After meeting with the local representatives we knew this is where we wanted to be,” said Tom Hemmer, CEO of the Solomon Corporation. “We are a small-town, rural company. That’s part of our culture and beliefs in our family-owned business. I believe we will fit in nicely in Prairie Du Chien and we’re excited to be expanding our business in Wisconsin.”

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and The City of Prairie Du Chien offered tax credits and incentives to attract Solomon to the area. The company plans to invest more than $2 million in the previously vacant 20,000 square-foot facility, equipment and other initiatives.

Located in the Northern Gateway Business Park, the core services include repair and remanufacture polemount and padmount transformers, voltage regulators, and oil circuit reclosers, in addition to offering field service and salvage services.

“We’re really excited about the new location,” said Steven Lidberg, Facility Manager. “The community will be a great fit for Solomon.”
