ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:

President Obama will follow up with his State of the Union address last night with a trip to Wisconsin today.

As part of his "White House to Main Street Tour," the president will visit three factories the White House says "have shown that we can win that contest, hiring workers and investing in industries of the future."

The first factory, Orion Energy Systems, is a power technology company that designs, manufactures and deploys energy efficiency and renewable energy technology for commercial and industrial business. From the factory floor Mr. Obama will speak on the economy in front of workers.

Afterward, the president will tour Skana Aluminum Company, an aluminum manufacturer and rolling mill.

Later, the President will tour Tower Tech Systems, a wind turbine tower manufacturer.

One day after his State of the Union address, the White House says the president today will, "continue his conversation with American families and workers" about rebuilding the economy.

"Companies like the ones the President is visiting and middle-class families in places like Manitowoc have benefitted from the President’s efforts to support growth and job creation, including through the package of tax cuts and unemployment insurance he signed last month and the Small Business Jobs Act signed last fall," the White House touted in advance of the president's visit.

In the evening, the president will return to Washington, D.C.
