Opened in 2013, the Global Water Center just south of downtown Milwaukee is a hub for water-centric companies from around the world.
Recently, the Milwaukee Business Journal was given access into the 98,000-square-foot building, which was converted from a warehouse into the research and testing facility it is today.

The Milwaukee region’s water industry is a $10.5 billion market, according to Milwaukee 7, the seven-county economic development organization. The area’s water industry supports 20,000 jobs and accounts for 4 percent of the total world water business, M7 says.
In 2018, The Brookings Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based research institute, named Milwaukee’s regional water technology industry as one of the best industry clusters in the nation.
