Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Visits FEECO International
Tuesday, February 28, Governor Scott Walker, of Wisconsin, visited FEECO International, to talk about the importance that mining holds for companies like FEECO, and for people all around the state.
FEECO, a long-time supplier of equipment and technologies to the mining sector, says about 35% of their business comes from the mining industry. With about 100 employees, FEECO is a key example of a company that has prospered in part, because of the mining industry, having added roughly 30 employees in the past five years alone. Dan Madigan, President of FEECO, stated, “At the end of the day, we are proud of our employees and the Wisconsin workforce, and continued mining efforts would allow all of us to continue that growth.” Scott VanLaanen, a burn table operator for FEECO, expressed what FEECO has been for his family. “I’ve been here 23 years. My dad worked 40 years here, and my brother’s got 34 years in. It’s a great place to work.”
