BizTimes Media today announced the winners of the 2022 Future 50 Awards, marking the return of a program that recognizes the fastest growing companies in southeastern Wisconsin. The winners include Macromatic Industrial Controls, Inc. in Waukesha.
Established in 1988, the Future 50 awards were originally a program of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce. The program is returning this year after a two-year hiatus with BizTimes Media taking the lead in planning it and MMAC remaining a partner.
“We’re proud to continue the Future 50 program and provide an objective measure of the fastest growing companies in the region,” said Dan Meyer, publisher and owner of BizTimes Media. “As the region’s only locally owned business publication, we’re excited to celebrate the companies creating jobs and opportunities for thousands of people in our communities.”
Combined, this year’s Future 50 winners expect to end 2022 with more than 4,800 employees and nearly $2.8 billion in projected revenues. Hitting those marks would mean these companies have added 1,171 jobs combined since 2019 and have grown their revenues by a combined $946 million over that time period.
“On behalf of the Milwaukee region’s business community, we congratulate this year’s Future 50 honorees,” said Tim Sheehy, president of the MMAC. “Our regional economy grows when our individual companies grow, and the companies recognized in the Future 50 awards are at the forefront of that growth. The success of these companies also serves as an inspiration for the next generation of entrepreneurs in our region – if these Future 50 companies can succeed here, many others can too.”
The Future 50 winners will be recognized at an awards luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 29, at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee. The program will include the recognition of the five fastest growing firms in the region.
