DE PERE, Wis. -- Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) visited PDQ Manufacturing Inc., manufacturer of in-bay automatic vehicle wash systems, on Jan. 23 as part of his Blueprint for Prosperity Tour. He stopped by PDQ after announcing the state's $911 million surplus and the intention to direct some of those funds to train skilled workers for manufacturing jobs at facilities like PDQ.
At the PDQ plant, Walker told workers that the surplus was generated by a stronger-than-expected economic recovery. "Wisconsin's manufacturing job growth is strong, and thanks to companies like PDQ Manufacturing, it's getting stronger," Walker said. "My Blueprint for Prosperity plan not only returns the bulk of our $911 million surplus to taxpayers, but it also invests in programs to help train skilled workers for the great manufacturing jobs that are available today."
"We are honored that Gov. Walker choose our facility here at PDQ to visit and discuss the points for his Blueprint for Prosperity," said Mike Savignac, president of PDQ. "I believe PDQ represents the type of commitment to manufacturing that the people of Wisconsin can call their own. We are very proud of our products and the workers who dedicate themselves to creating those products every day."
Walker has been the subject of early speculation that he may be a Republican candidate for president in 2016.
De Pere, Wis.-based PDQ is an industry leader in in-bay automatic wash systems with brands including LaserWash and ProTouch in-bay automatic vehicle wash systems, SwingAir and MaxAir dryers, Access Wash Activation Systems, Cortex and WALS.
