A spotlight on a startup inside of the Sheboygan Falls-based manufacturing corporation.

Bemis Retail Solutions, a startup division of Bemis Manufacturing, produces state-of-the-art shopping carts. These next-generation carts have a tracking technology integration that helps retailers better understand their customers and manage their fleet of carts.

This talk, hosted by The Surge, will feature Kyle Payne from Bemis, whose team is responsible for the development and sales of the corporate startup's "smart carts."

Kyle will talk about the business starting inside of Bemis Manufacturing and how the startup is different from its parent company. He'll explain the problem that the smart cart product was created to solve and give a rundown of the product's development timeline.

The second part of the spotlight will open up to questions from attendees.


The Surge is a diverse network of engaged problem-solvers who love to collaborate and grow. By providing focused programming, access to unique resources, and a culture of innovation, The Surge seeks to enable the creation of new ideas and value for Sheboygan County, its residents, and beyond.
