DECEMBER 2015 – Cedarburg, WI – This year, instead of doing an internal gift exchange, resources were pooled to purchase new toys to gift to a local toy drive through Kapco Metal & Stamping in Grafton. Donations from staff were collected by Cindy and Minal and delivered directly to the Kapco’s office. On the way, we decided to pose for a photo at Santa’s Workshop in downtown Cedarburg. As Cindy put it, “It was fine when we were stacking the toys in front of Santa’s Workshop for the photo. It just looked a little suspicious when we grabbed them all after and stashed them in Minal’s car – right on the main street in Cedarburg!”
We hope to grow this wonderful tradition next year and have our colleagues, clients, friend, and families donate with us. We want to see this pile get bigger and bigger every year!

SEPTEMBER 2013 – Cedarburg, WI – M Squared Engineering celebrates its 10th year in business on September 10, 2013. M Squared Engineering started out in a little 10 x 10 room behind Matt and Minal’s house in Cedarburg. There they put in long hours, after the kids went in bed, to get the company started. In this small one room office they acquired enough work to require moving to a larger office. They hired three additional staff in 2005 and moved their office to Evergreen Blvd in Cedarburg. After a few years and additional growth, they bought a building in Cedarburg and renovated it in 2009. Once converted to an office, they hired additional staff to help manage the workload.
