Announcing the Wisconsin Automation Implementation Grant
Effective immediately the WEDC working with the Wisconsin MEP Network (including WMEP Manufacturing Solutions) is offering the Wisconsin Automation Implementation Grant to help lower the risk of automation technology implementations by providing expertise and offsetting some of the costs. The two-step process enables manufacturers to select the most appropriate technology, plan effective implementation, and receive financial support for acquiring that technology.
The process starts with individual manufacturers completing an AutomationAdvisor™ project with WMEP Manufacturing Solutions (WMEP) or the UW-Stout Manufacturing Outreach Center (MOC), resulting in an automation implementation roadmap with equipment recommended through that assessment. This roadmap lays out a sequenced technology acquisition and implementation plan tailored to the specific operation.
Completing the roadmap makes companies eligible for financial support up to $35,000 for acquiring the equipment listed in the roadmap.
