Wildeck, Inc. Provides Platforms at 2024 Republican National Convention

The RNC has sourced local Milwaukee-area manufacturer, Wildeck, Inc., to provide structural steel platforms supporting media team members and TV camera equipment.

WAUKESHA, Wis. (July 1, 2024) – Wildeck, Inc., a leading material handling equipment manufacturer, proudly announces its role in designing and manufacturing structural steel platforms (mezzanines) for the upcoming 2024 Republican National Convention. The event is set to take place from July 15 to 18, 2024, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, less than 20 miles from Wildeck’s headquarters in Waukesha, Wis.

In partnership with Willoughby, Ohio-based Morrison Company, a prominent Systems Integrator in the material handling and storage industry, Wildeck has delivered two custom-designed platforms to support the media suites and additional smaller platforms for TV camera equipment. The media suite platforms, 975 sq ft and 1,450 sq ft in size, were designed to fit within the shape of the arena bowl, while the camera platforms were engineered with high rigidity to ensure stable televised coverage.

Jim Green, president of Morrison Company, stated, “As Morrison Company has come to expect from Wildeck as our mezzanine partner over the past 30 years, we obtained competitive pricing, detailed engineering and on-time production for this project. Wildeck gave this project the dedicated attention required to meet all deadlines, including production design, pricing, installation drawings and extremely tight delivery schedules.”

The collaboration between Morrison Company and Wildeck is rooted in their successful history of similar projects, including the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland. The RNC Staging Contractor expressed confidence in the Morrison/Wildeck team’s ability to meet the challenging timeline due to their proven track record.

Dan Lorenz, president of Wildeck, Inc., commented, “This has been an exciting opportunity and partnership with Morrison Company to design, build and install highly sensitive motion-free platforms for the RNC at Fiserv Forum. I am very proud of my team for once again raising the bar in standard and custom platform designs.”

Wildeck’s platforms for the event were manufactured using USA steel and local union labor was employed for the installation, aligning with the values and standards expected for such a significant national event.
