Kapco Inc., a Wisconsin metal fabricator and stamper, didn’t get noticed nationally because it expanded its metal fabrication capability during the past decade; because it continued to grow throughout the worst of the recession; or because the firm operates debt-free.

The family is headed by a single mother of three who was diagnosed with breast cancer; two of her children have cerebral palsy.”
