Milwaukee, WI - Jose Aviles, the now retired Founder and President of Aviles & Associates, Inc., in Milwaukee announced that the Aviles Plastics, a display fabrication and cutting specialists company operated by his family that he began in 1986 at 1531 S. 1st. Street, then move to bigger location at 1500 W. National Ave. in 1999 and in March 2018 has moved its location into a 39,500 sq.ft. manufacturing facility at 4601 S. 5th St. Aviles says that the new location provides an opportunity for his family who operate the successful plastic fabricating company to continue to expand its manufacturing capabilities. The company has multiple state of the art laser cutting machines which designs are programed by his son and has employees that have worked with the company for more than 33 years in the business.
Aviles attributes his success to hard work, family dedication and learned experiences in acquiring contracts to make the business into a multi-million state of the art plastic display fabricator in the midwest. Aviles at times experienced hardships in acquiring contracts from large manufacturers, but his determination to succeed paid off when he began to get contracts and today, Aviles Plastics is sought by manufacturers from around the country looking for innovative ways to display their products, which Aviles Plastics specializes in designing plastic displays to meet the customers needs. Aviles continues to remodel the new facility and it will include an exhibit show room for visitors and visiting product manufacturers (potential customers) that can check out Aviles Plastics specialty fabricated products.
Aviles first arrived in the U.S. from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico at the age of 25 and worked in several plastic fabricating companies where he became a manager in plastic fabrication work. He finally opened his first plastic fabricating company in 1986 in the Southside of Milwaukee when several companies where he worked closed.
As a successful plastic display manufacturer, Aviles is also a community stakeholder and has been instrumental along with the late community education activist Dante Navarro in advocating for the Mexican government to open a Mexican Consulate in Milwaukee. Aviles remembers when he volunteered his services from 2004 to 2011 and accompanied Navarro who worked for United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS) throughout Wisconsin to visit migrant workers and many of those workers needed certain documents from the Mexican government. So, Aviles along with Navarro began to advocate for the Mexican government to open a Mexican Consulate, but it wasn't until a full community effort in 2015 and 2016 that the Mexican government finally opened a Consulate in Milwaukee.
In 1996 to 2000, Aviles while being the President of the Latino Sports Association of Wisconsin, Inc., a non-profit organization organized and invited the Mexican Council based in Chicago to come to Milwaukee and held the gatherings at the Aviles & Associates building to provided the needed services to the growing Mexican speaking community. In early 2000, Aviles turned over the annual hosting to bring the Mexican Council to Mexican Fiesta.
In 1998, Aviles graduated from the FBI Citizens Academy. In 1994, Aviles was recognized by the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) and the Milwaukee Common Council for his sponsorship of several fully equipped police bicycles, which they were able to participate at the 1995 Police and Bikes Conference organized by the International Police Mountain Bike Association. Aviles sponsorship of the police bikes initiate the first Police Bicycle Patrol and community orientated policing to help police officers work with citizens. 
Aviles is also well known for his volunteer services at UMOS and at the annual three-day Mexican Fiesta. His passed achievements and success have earned Aviles, the SER for Progress César E. Chavez Humanitarian Award in 1996 along with the second recipient Genoveva Medina, which the awards were presented to both Aviles and Medina at the Mexican Fiesta in Milwaukee.
The Council for the Spanish Speaking, Inc. and the Comité Cívico Cultural Hispano selected Aviles as the Mexican Independence Parade Marshall in 1993. 
Aviles in the 1990's also help establish more than 30 adult soccer teams as Founder/President of Latino Sports Association of WI, Inc. He also helped to establish three soccer fields for youths at S. 6th and W. Canal Streets in the Menomonee Valley including soccer team tournaments at Mexican Fiesta when he was a coordinator. 
From 1979 to 1986, Aviles was the President of Club Deportivo Latino founded by Pablo Borda. In 1979, he was the President of the Club Latino Andecker Soccer Club.
He also modeled shirts for Kolh's Department Stores.
Aviles as a successful plastic manufacturer has been a member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, the Private Industry Council (PIC) - Selection Committee Board.
Aviles also lectures to groups of students that working hard and having a business plan, they can also succeed. "Si Se Puede", Aviles says. Aviles explained that Latinos are also successful in manufacturering, just like any other business, which breaks down the barriers and the stereotypes that Latinos are just laborers, restaurant owners and cooks. 
Many Latinos today like Aviles are certainly role models and professionals from every field including business, corporations, manufacturers, public elected officials and in law enforcement in Wisconsin.
