The Economic Advantages of Stoughton
Stoughton lists several well-known businesses among its corporate citizens. Stoughton Trailers, LLC, Universal AET, Inc, Cummins Filtration, Stoughton Trailers, Stellar Services, Zalk Joseph, B&G Foods (Ortega), Uniroyal Engineered Products, LLC and many others have chosen to make our community their headquarters or the site of a key regional operation. They have chosen Stoughton for a variety of reasons including proximity to markets; transportation assets; supportive attitude of local government; and, the overall quality of life in the community.
Stoughton could be the ideal location for your business to locate and grow. Strategically located fifteen minutes south of Madison, Stoughton has land available in its business/industrial parks and is eager to work with you to tailor a site that will meet your needs.
A true multi-modal community, Stoughton has easy access to Interstate Highway 94/39; has State Highway 51 running through the community; and, has rail access with the Southern Wisconsin railroad freight line. Dane County Regional Airport is a quick 20-minute drive via the Interstate.
The world renowned University of Wisconsin with its extensive research, biotech and engineering resources is a quick 20-minute drive. The UW is a great resource for both new technology transfer concepts and for highly-trained workers as well.
A supportive city government is important to the creation and maintenance of a positive work environment. Through its formation of a Regional Development Authority; willingness to use Tax Incremental Financing; and, the existence of a locally-owned utility, Stoughton is the embodiment of a business-friendly government. Elected officials and city staff are committed to making your business thrive here.
If you have need of any financial assistance, again, we are eager to do whatever we can to help make things happen.
