May 9, 2024 | News

Each year, Lake County Partners hosts the “Big Event,” a showcase of Lake County’s dynamic business community and economic strength, serving as a catalyst for collaboration, idea exchange, inspiration, and networking.

At this year’s event, held May 9 at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, LCWD Board Member Josh Fischer and the entire team at Fischer Paper Products were recognized with the 2024 Community Investment Award for their commitment to Lake County and investment in workforce partnerships and the talent pipeline.

“Fischer Paper Products has had a presence in Chicagoland for over 52 years, and our long history is the direct reflection of support we’ve received from the community,” noted President and Owner Josh Fischer. “When we weighed options for the company’s long-term growth, Lake County was a natural choice. In working with local officials, the Village of Antioch, Lake County Workforce Development, the College of Lake County and Lake County Partners, we’ve been able to tap into the workforce that we need to drive momentum for future generations.”
