On Tuesday, the Mount Pleasant Village Board awarded Fond du Lac County-based Guelig Waste Removal And Demolition a $366,665 contract for demolition work tied to the Foxconn Technology Group campus.

Guelig has been awarded two previous contracts for demolition associated with the Foxconn project. The bid team includes three other Wisconsin-based companies.

Said Claude Lois, project director for the Village of Mount Pleasant: “In keeping with our commitment to Wisconsin first, the awarded team includes four Wisconsin-based companies.”

“That a small, Wisconsin business is growing because of the Foxconn project is a testament to the statewide impact of this project,” said Bob Guelig, owner of Guelig Waste Removal.

Guelig Waste Removal, based in Eden, was the only bidder for Bid Package C. The three subcontractors on the bidding team include: KPH Construction, based in Milwaukee; Krizan’s Well Drilling, based in Union Grove; and Pat’s Services Inc., based in Burlington.

This work will focus on building demolition along County Highway H, from Highway 11 to County Highway KR.

Foxconn site development started with excavation work in April, which was followed with construction of a Multipurpose Building starting in this month. Construction of the Advanced Display Manufacturing buildings is anticipated to start in early to middle 2019.

Procurement (bidding) for subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and professional services firms will continue to follow “a clear and detailed process with good faith efforts to place Wisconsin First while building significant capacity in both workforce and businesses,” according to the project website.  Bid opportunities will be emailed to all companies that have registered to receive such information on https://foxconn-construction.gilbaneco.com as well as through the Wisconn Valley News.
