Over 1,000 people are employed at The Schield Family Companies' Mosinee facility. It includes administrative offices and a 660,000-square-foot plant where Crestline and Vetter products are manufactured.

Situated along the Wisconsin River in the heart of the state, Mosinee is a product of central Wisconsin's prolific lumbering era of the early 1800s. Dense forests of white pine dominated the countryside. Sawmills sprang up to manufacture the harvested lumber. With the sawmills came settlers, grist mills, tanneries, and other businesses that combined to make a community. Originally known as Little Bull Falls, the city's name was changed to Mosinee when it was chosen for the site of a post office in 1857.

Minutes from Wausau, the region's economic hub, Mosinee offers the best of both worlds: small-town living with close proximity to the area's best shopping, dining, entertainment, art festivals, and recreational and cultural opportunities. The Central Wisconsin Regional Airport provides connections to Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee.

Lakes, rivers and recreational areas provide year-round enjoyment, from downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter, to boating and swimming in the summer, to year-round fishing. The annual Christmas parade and Fourth of July Festival and parade are favorite seasonal events that draw crowds from surrounding communities.
