Already home to manufacturers of plastics, glass, batteries, silicone products, coated paper, pre-cast concrete, a tool & die maker and a food processor, we are eager for more industries to join them in our business park. The downtown retail district is a great location for the entrepreneur selling a unique product. Ideally situated along Interstates 90/94 and 39, just outside of Madison–and within a few hours of busy markets in Milwaukee, Chicago and the Twin Cities–Portage is an economic hub.
Working jointly, the City, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Columbia County Economic Development Corporation facilitate economic development initiatives by providing leadership and direction. With continued redevelopment of the historic downtown area, the new Portage Enterprise Center (a business incubator), and excellent transportation access available, including our municipal airport, Portage is the place your business should be.
