A surge in ethanol production means big business for some Wisconsin manufacturers.
Metal fabricators say they're busy cutting, welding and shaping stainless steel into large ethanol tanks for plants around the world.
A & B Process Systems in Stratford is doubling the size of its plant and hiring about 60 more people to handle the boom. Paget Equipment Company in Marshfield also hired more workers and added a second shift.
Ethanol is usually made from corn and blended with gasoline to fuel automobiles. Advocates say it lessens our dependence on foreign oil.
