ConceptWorks, Inc. began in 1984 as Sheboygan County Woodworking, as a two-man cabinet shop, operating out of an old dairy barn. In 2006 the name was changed to ConceptWorks as the business diversified and grew. In 2014 ConceptWorks further diversified its business by purchasing Mekco in Newton, a manufacturing facility that builds pre-engineered FRP buildings, enclosures, and other custom products. Today ConceptWorks employs 40 individuals between two facilities and two warehouses.

ConceptWorks is in the process building a 7,200 square foot addition which primarily will be used for storage and light industrial use. This expansion is slated to be complete in late September.

ConceptWorks (along with its Mekco subsidiary) also has plans to launch a product line in late 2015. A variety of manufactured products are slated to be launched in the coming years.

The owners of ConceptWorks are Adam Schneider, Jason Gudex, and Mike Bruflat.

In 2015 the Elkhart Lake Chamber of Commerce recognized ConceptWorks with the Business Innovation Award. In 2012 Sheboygan’s Coastal Connections-Making Their Mark recognized Schneider as a Top Ten Young Professional. Several trade show displays made by ConceptWorks have been awarded “Best of Show,” most recently a booth for the 2015 Miami Boat Show.

ConceptWorks is located at W3126 STH 32, Elkhart Lake. For more information call (920) 565-3099 or check out www.conceptworks. biz.
