Also on hand was Representative Peter Barca for the ceremony. Rep. Barca is a former Congressman and former Midwest Regional Director for the US Small Business Administration.
“I congratulate the owners, leadership, and staff of Aztalan for their success in guiding the company to an expansion during difficult economic times,” Representative Barca remarked. “We as leaders of the State of Wisconsin applaud their innovation and ability to grow jobs at a time when they are needed the most.”
Aztalan Engineering, Inc. continues to work with Department of Commerce and other state agencies to take full advantage of grants and business incentives available to them.
“I wish Jim and everyone at Aztalan the best of luck as they look to expand their business here in our community,” Jorgensen concluded. “I will continue doing all that I can to encourage small businesses like this one to grow and remain successful for years to come.”
