STURTEVANT — Nearly 500 companies were represented Tuesday afternoon at an information session for hopeful Foxconn Technology Group construction-phase subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and professional services providers.

Two weeks ago, Taiwan-based Foxconn announced that it had selected M+W Gilbane, CH2M and The Sigma Group to serve as the lead contractors and designers for the $10 billion Science and Technology Park it plans to build in the southwestern part of Mount Pleasant.

Tuesday’s session, at Fountain Banquet Hall, 8505 Durand Ave., was led by Adam Jelen, senior vice president of Gilbane Building Co.’s Central Midwest Division; Allen Ware, vice president of M+W; and Matt Moroney, strategic economic initiatives director for the Wisconsin Department of Administration.

Foxconn has committed to spending about $1.4 billion with Wisconsin-based suppliers.
