With a strong history of heavy manufacturing, the Midwest is reinventing itself from the “rust belt” into the “green belt” as we increasingly produce wind energy components and fabrications locally to meet the growing demand for renewable energy. What’s more, there is a real transportation advantage here in the Midwest with the strongest rail hub in the country, paired with outstanding access to the inland river port system which can deliver cost-effective transportation for heavy-haul, over-dimensional wind energy cargo.  As our economy continues to shift from global sourcing to domestic manufacturing, the Midwest is poised for economic growth and Broadwind Energy is proud to be located throughout the region to help foster and support this manufacturing and renewable energy transformation.
