Kapco Metal Stamping Supports Music, Local Charities in Greater Milwaukee Community During Pandemic
By Rick Barrett, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
With music venues closed across the country because of the pandemic, a Grafton manufacturing company stepped up to offer drive-in concerts.
It’s just one of many things Kapco Metal Stamping has done, for decades, to support the Milwaukee area from its home base in Grafton.
Kapco manufactures metal components for a diverse set of customers needing stamping, fabrication and welding. As a family-owned business founded in 1972, the company now employs about 500 people, mostly in Grafton.
The company has customers in industries including military and heavy equipment, agricultural machinery, consumer products, recreational equipment, and commercial lighting.
It manufactures, for example, the handlebars on snow throwers and the seat pan of garden tractors.
For prospective employees: “First and foremost I would tell them we are safe. We are safe enough that if I wanted one of my children to work at this plant, I would absolutely trust it,” Wenger said.
We make thousands of different metal components that might be stamped, cut on a laser, bent in a press brake, machined or welded, and those are sent to customers for final assemblies,” said Jenny Wenger, senior director of talent and organizational development.
