Two Wisconsin companies looking to get millions in defense contracts

BROOKFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - Two Wisconsin firms are in line to get millions of dollars in defense contracts over the next five years.  

The federal government has announced a $633 million deal in which Solution Dynamics of Brookfield will provide material handling equipment to the military. That includes "Big Joe" forklifts made in Wisconsin Dells by the firm of Big Lift, which is based in suburban Chicago.  

It's not known how much funding the two companies will get.  

The Pentagon must still decide how much to spend with a number of companies on a larger suppliers' list from now through 2018.
