Brookfield Business & Industry

brookfield business and industry

The secret to Brookfield’s strong, steady growth and financial success can be directly linked to the abundance of flourishing businesses in the community. Whether traveling through the expanding town center along Calhoun Road or along Bluemound Road or Capitol Drive, you’ll see the signs of brisk commerce and new development. Although born of agricultural roots, Brookfield is now a 21st century leader in regional technology-based business and industry. Its office and industrial parks have for years been the standard by which all others are evaluated in the Metro Milwaukee area. Just visit Bishop’s Woods Office Park, Brookfield Lakes Corporate Center, Executive Drive Office Park, Gateway West or the Crossroads Corporate Center to understand why. Here, designers have integrated modern structures with natural surroundings to produce a harmony conducive to continued business success. Around the country, insiders know that a Brookfield address represents a hallmark corporate image for companies with the vision to locate here.

Driven predominantly by professional offices, light manufacturing and service industries, Brookfield’s economy hums with commercial activity. Since Brookfield has the region’s largest concentration of office space outside of downtown Milwaukee, proximity to downtown Milwaukee and extremely convenient transportation, it has become the premier location for new and relocating businesses in the metropolitan area. Many national and local enterprises have headquarters or significant offices among Brookfield’s nearly 4 million square feet of industrial space and more than 6 million square feet of office space. Prestigious names (such as AT&T; Guhring Incorporated; Fiserv, Inc.; Norlight Telecommunications; Shorewest Realty; National Funeral Directors Association; and Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation) are visible throughout the community.

Relying on a base of diversified companies, professional services, retail and light industry, Brookfield’s economy continues to expand as the Chamber of Commerce works hand-in-hand with its business partners and community leaders. Moreover, the future success of Brookfield’s enterprise will depend on drawing from the vast pool of educated, experienced workers in the area.

With a strong and active Chamber of Commerce, accessible labor force, superb educational system, numerous business parks, attractive development opportunities and a business-friendly infrastructure, Brookfield continues to attract a multitude of new commercial and industrial enterprises while faithfully supporting established companies.

Brookfield’s dynamic business community has expanded by an average of approximately 100 new businesses annually, with a combined 200,000 square feet of office and retail development per year over the past decade occurring here.

Looking to the future, the Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce launched the First Annual Sustainable Brookfield Day in 2010. The event recognizes and highlights Brookfield businesses that are engaged in some form of sustainable business. From upgrading lighting to be more energy efficient, to building a LEED certified building – all are recognized.

To serve the young professionals in the business community, the Chamber recently launched a young professionals group, called Summit, for those 21-35. This program offers educational opportunities, networking opportunities and community service opportunities for the young professionals in our community.
