Hydro-Thermal Named to Future 50 List

Waukesha, WI - Hydro-Thermal Corporation has been named a 2015 Future 50 company by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE).

The Future 50 program, now in its 28th year, recognizes privately-owned companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.

“It is always encouraging to see such a strong group of applicants and winners in this program each year. These companies truly represent the future of our region,” said Mary Steinbrecher, executive director of COSBE.

When asked what entrepreneurial traits helped him lead the organization to where it is today, Hydro-Thermal President, Jim Zaiser, credits his self-motivation, inner drive, optimism, trust in himself, courage, passion, discipline and strong communication. He also acknowledges that he still practices and evolves these traits every day. Jim notes, “They are a key element in determining the sustainability of our team and our future.”

The Future 50 companies will be honored at an awards luncheon on Thursday, September 10, from 11:30am to 1:30pm at The Pfister Hotel. The luncheon will be hosted by the MMAC, COSBE and BizTimes Media. To register to attend, visit www.mmac.org/events.

“We look forward to honoring these fast-growing companies and learning more about the best practices that are driving their growth,” said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Milwaukee.

Hydro-Thermal recently received the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year (WIMOTY) Grand Award. This is the 29th year of the WIMOTY annual award program, which recognizes outstanding achievement in manufacturing. Hydro-Thermal won this award the first time in 2010, and was a finalist in 2015.

Hydro-Thermal competed in the medium sized business category (100-299 employees), which was also the most competitive category with a total of 10 finalist companies. Award criteria covers commitment to employees, effective research and development, commitment to quality, financial growth and stability, and commitment to community.

Here are a few highlights from Hydro-Thermal’s award application:

Commitment to Employees
