Virtual Tour


Grandfather Christensen, an inventor, saw a need for a contract machine shop as an extension of his own work. Since its start in 1945, Wiscon Products has grown in size and mastered breakthroughs. Our commitment to excellence never swerved. We now occupy over 30,000 square feet of modern manufacturing space with over sixty employees working three shifts, seven days a week. We stake our reputation on quality parts and high volume orders that other machine shops simply can't handle.

Wiscon Products is a family of dedicated employees getting to do exactly what they want to do. The challenge is constant streamlining of the process and investment into the business. The goal is the highest level of client satisfaction with expediency and quality. Our cutting-edge Virtual Machine technology allows for offline programming of complex parts, which keeps our work machines productive. The staff of our fully on-site Quality Assurance lab perform in-process and final checks, giving our clients the confidence that their order has been double-checked. We will meet or exceed your supplier needs!

Take a journey in time over Wiscon Products' 75+ years of excellence, and see our dedication in action. If you have any questions, or to receive a quote for work, drop by our Contact Us page.
