Gearbox Express, Mukwonago, WI

We were blown away by big opportunity.

Gearbox Express opened the doors in our wind energy start-up just four short years ago. We have exceeded projections, expectations and capacity — and need a new headquarters with new innovations to meet demands.

Wind Energy is alive and well, and open for business Wisconsin and Gearbox Express is leading the charge.
