Local company preparing for defense work

Pro Active Engineering of Sun Prairie has completed registration that will make it eligible to take on projects for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Pro Active is a circuit board manufacturer and is ripe for expansion if President Trump’s defense budget is increased. Pro Active creates circuit boards for a variety of applications including medical technology, and it could be called upon to develop medical components to help treat military personnel in combat.

The company reported a 62% increase in sales in 2016 and has increased its employee count from 42 to 65, according to a story in the Wisconsin State Journal.
