Wausau Tile Walks with Imperial Industries to Raise Money for Local Charities


Wausau Tile and its sister company, Imperial Industries, have called the Wausau area home for more than 65 years – and have always believed in giving back to the community they serve.

On Saturday, June 2, employees and families from both companies spent their weekend doing just that as nearly 100 people came together to get active and show their support for local charities during the first annual “Wellness Walk.”

Proceeds from the walk – including food and monetary donations – went to the Wausau Warming Center and Community Center of Hope in Mosinee, Wisconsin.

Thank you to everyone who helped make our first annual “Wellness Walk” a huge success and the start of a great tradition for many years to come.

Wausau Made bollards make headlines as part of Pokémon Go craze


Target stores nationwide have a signature look, one that’s impossible to miss and can be largely attributed to two things: the bullseye logo, and the spherical red bollards placed in front of every store.

Long provided by Wausau Made as a dependable solution for security and traffic flow, Target’s signature red bollards have recently undergone a makeover at more than 400 locations as the popularity of the location-based augmented reality game Pokémon Go continues to rise. Painted to resemble the game’s Poké Balls, the new-look bollards have been causing double takes and prompting excited fans to take selfies with Wausau Made’s star site furnishing product, as recently profiled by Mashable

Wausau Made bollards, planters featured in news story about post-9/11 security


Tough and durable concrete bollardsplanters and other security products from Wausau Made, a Wausau Tile Inc. brand, were featured earlier this week in a news story from our local CBS News affiliate. The story talked about how governments and businesses sought to step up their protective measures and how our 60-plus years of commitment to strength and security put us in a leadership position and led to tremendous growth to meet this demand. 

According to WSAW-TV: “From airport security to entering major sporting events, a lot has changed since 9/11. Some things are obvious, but others are more subtle, like the creations coming out of Wausau Tile. The items they manufacture protect people and businesses, and although some are large, you may have never even noticed them. Driving down the road, walking through the park, or running to the store, some barriers you might not even notice. Production of these massive cement blocks has grown since the September 11th attacks.”
