WAUKESHA — Another company with Waukesha County ties has been selected to work on Foxconn Technology Group’s massive Racine County project.

PSI Intertek, with a Waukesha location, was selected for materials testing for foundations and related construction.

PSI Intertek was one of three prime subcontractors based in Wisconsin that were announced Wednesday to work on the Gen6 advanced manufacturing facility at the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Racine County.

The three subcontractors, PSI Intertek, CD Smith Construction of Fond du Lac, and Otis Elevator Company of Milwaukee, will all start work on the foundations of the Gen6 advanced manufacturing facility.

CD Smith Construction will be responsible for excavation and concrete foundation work and Otis Elevator Company will do elevator work.

The contracts, which carry a combined total contract value of nearly $13 million, represent the first awards for vertical construction of the Gen6 building.

“Foxconn is very excited to announce the first awards for the vertical construction of the Gen6 advanced manufacturing facility — the heart of the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park,” said Peter Buck, executive director of the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park, in a statement. “We’re proud to be delivering on our ‘Wisconsin First’ commitment by awarding these contracts to outstanding Wisconsin-based companies. These are the first of many forthcoming bid awards for the vertical construction of our advanced manufacturing facility, and we’re excited to drive further the construction progress at the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in the coming weeks and months.”
