Since our founding in 1928, we’ve been committed to giving back to our local community in Milwaukee. Walter Helwig valued community involvement and instilled this same value in the people at Helwig Carbon. We’ve formed long-term relationships with the United Way and The Next Door Foundation to better our community. In fact, when Helwig Carbon moved to a new facility on the Northwest side of Milwaukee, Walter Helwig’s decedents decided to donate the old building to The Next Door Foundation. They still occupy that space today.
