PEWAUKEE – The Foxconn Technology Group on Thursday received the Golden Shovel Award from the National Association of Minority Contractors Wisconsin Chapter (NAMC-WI) and Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) at the Annual DBE Workshop and Secretary’s Golden Shovel Awards.
The award recognized Foxconn’s ongoing commitment to engage a diverse range of local businesses as part of its inclusive, Wisconsin-first approach. The event, which gathered Wisconsin’s small, minority, and women-owned businesses in the transportation construction industry, was held on February 13 and 14 at The Ingleside Hotel in Pewaukee.
It culminated with an awards luncheon to recognize the outstanding efforts of companies from around Wisconsin that have championed the Badger State’s local construction talent. Of the Wisconsin companies engaged by Foxconn for the Wisconn Science and Technology Park project, 16 percent are disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs).
