In 2003, the Ozaukee County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC) revisited its current strategic plan. As part of that process, OCEDC board members determined that a more comprehensive view of the county's business climate was needed. As such, OCEDC partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Consortium for Economic Opportunity (UWMCEO) to develop a location quotient analysis of Ozaukee County.
UWMCEO examined the County's industries and compared employment, payroll and establishment concentrations with National figures. From this data, it is clear that Ozaukee County has a large Manufacturing Sector, with a concentration in metal fabrication, component and appliance production and plastics and paper manufacturing. These industries are significant at both a state and national level.
OCEDC's next steps will be to analyze how best to strengthen, support and grow these industries.
