“Wausau’s extensive experience with hurricane impact resistant products is essential to this region, especially for hospitals and schools. Along with storm protection, Wausau’s blast mitigating products offer additional protection for government buildings in the area,” says Baer. “The people behind these products have a great deal of pride in their workmanship and their company. I’m glad to join them.”
