What Bert Has To Say About Racine Metro Area

Racine is an industrial center located 30 miles south of Milwaukee and 50 miles north of downtown Chicago. Local businesses include J.I. Case (a manufacturer of farm equipment) and the S.C. Johnson Co. (of Johnson Wax and Windex fame). The Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Johnson’s headquarters is one of the most famous commercial buildings in the country, and there are four other Wright buildings in town. Despite the steady employment brought by S.C. Johnson and its headquarters and factory operations, the rest of the economy has been in the doldrums. Recently-elected leadership is working hard to bring new business to the area.
