Western Lime Corporation | West Bend, WI

101_3770Western Lime Corporation is a Wisconsin based company with lime manufacturing operations in Fond du Lac, WI, Green Bay, WI and Gulliver, MI. Western Lime Corporation is the result of a 1921 merger of eight Wisconsin Lime producers, the oldest of which predated the State of Wisconsin’s entry into the Union. Today, the descendants of one of the original families carry on a six- generation commitment to its customers, the business, and the industry.

Western Lime has long been involved in Michigan’s economy. Since 1921, Western Lime’s Green Bay, WI plant has processed limestone sourced from quarries located in Michigan. In 2007, Western completed construction of a new state of the art lime plant in Gulliver, MI. This flag-ship plant efficiently produces 250,000 tons of lime annually. The Gulliver Plant’s high calcium lime is used in environmental applications such as drinking water treatment, flue gas desulfurization and iron ore mining and a wide range of industrial customers such as steel and paper manufacturers located throughout the Midwest.

Western Lime’s Gulliver, MI plant employs 25 people and is located at 181 Cty Rd 432, Gulliver, MI.
