EAGLE RIVER - People all across the world know Eagle River for its snowmobile races. But a tiny company there also helps people around the globe take flight.
Eagle Fuel Cells employs just 15 people. They're best known for making and repairing fuel cells for corporate airplanes and race cars.
"A fuel cell is a rubber bladder. It was originally designed for the military and their trainer aircraft and then quickly transitioned into the bombers and fighters with the self sealing material that they used," says Kurt Hartwig, General Manager and Co-Owner.
That work won the company the Wisconsin Aviation Business of the Year Award. It rewards excellence in customer service and products. Even with their new success, Eagle Fuel Cells doesn't plan on moving any time soon.
"We originally were a regional type company but over the years, we've expanded to international. Today we reach across the whole globe," says Kurt Hartwig.
