Adams County Economic Development (ACED)

Created in 1993, Adams County Economic Development (ACED) has strived to make Adams County a better place to work and do business by helping to coordinate and direct economic development activities in Adams County, Wisconsin. Today, we have the same goal that we had when we started: to create as many new viable business opportunities and jobs as possible, and to make sure that our existing businesses have all the necessary tools for expansion available to them.

Adams County has undergone an encouraging transformation in recent years. ACED offers innovative financing packages to assist new and existing businesses in start up and expansion. We take pride in our proactive approach to seeking out new businesses. We are an aggressive participant in development projects, going far beyond the reach of other counties in our involvement in economic development. Adams County has many resources available for businesses who are wise enough to locate or expand here.

Life & Recreation

Quality of LIFE

Now more than ever, businesses take quality of life into account before choosing where to locate. Outdoor recreation is one of the main reasons that people come to enjoy Adams County. Situated on Wisconsin's second and fourth largest lakes, Petenwell and Castle Rock, Adams County sees visitors from all over the country who come to enjoy all the fishing, water skiing, and family boating that these lakes (and our 30 or so other lakes) have to offer.
