Chamco, Inc.

50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years
 
Since its inception in 1960, Chamco’s unique approach to economic development - creative solutions to serve business needs, a strong partnership with the public sector, and a singular focus on industrial development - has been enormously successful at retaining, growing and recruiting business to establish a strong economic base in Oshkosh.

Chamco’s structure is unique as a public/private partnership between the city, county and private business community. The partnership is financial, as Chamco is funded in part by the business community, the City of Oshkosh and Winnebago County. It is also an operational partnership with all parties collaborating on projects and initiatives to enhance economic development.

Dave Omachinski, Chamco Chair affirms, "It is important to emphasize that none of Chamco’s accomplishments would be possible without our many partners in economic development and supporters in the community. Successful economic development requires the attention and commitment of the entire community, including the City of Oshkosh, Winnebago County, Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce/Oshkosh Area Economic Development Corp., University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Fox Valley Technical College, and the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. In addition, our many business partners from local industry as well as hundreds of individuals who have served as volunteer board and committee members have all played a vital role in the growth and development of the Oshkosh area. We extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all who have worked hand in hand with us over these 50 years."

To celebrate and commemorate the first 50 years, Chamco would like to highlight some of the many companies it has been fortunate to assist with financial incentives, site and building selection, industrial park development and economic development advocacy in its 50th anniversary booklet and video. While the tools used over these past 5 decades may have changed, Chamco’s mission has remained constant and vigilant: to foster the industrial development of the Oshkosh area through existing business retention and expansion and new business recruitment. Chamco celebrates this 50 year milestone with pride and looks forward to another 50 years of successful economic development!
