Senator Ron Johnson and Alderman Joe Davis Visit Matzel Manufacturing

March 2, 2014

Milwaukee, WI – February 26, 2014 – Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson (Rep) and District 2 Alderman Joe Davis (Dem) met together on Monday, February 17th to tour Milwaukee based, Matzel Manufacturing, as they discussed cross party solutions for creating a pro-hire environment for local manufactures. One of those solutions is to work with Wisconsin youth apprenticeship programs which allow young professionals to gain real world experience. The goal is to build capacity in the workforce by teaching emerging professionals a strong work ethic and drive to succeed.

Bradley Tech Senior, Anthony Thao, is an example of how the efforts of Matzel Manufacturing, working with local and state officials, are making a positive difference in the effort to provide young professionals an honorable career. Thao shared that he is very much enjoying his apprenticeship and being a part of the Matzel team, stating that he hopes to join Matzel as a full-time employee once he completes his apprenticeship. When asked what he likes most about Matzel, he added “the different skills and processes I am learning on different machines”.

Senator Johnson stated that he believes the foundation of our local economy is founded in our area employers and workforce coming together to create a stronger community. Alderman Davis echoed this message by complimenting companies like Matzel Manufacturing for their innovative solutions when engaging the younger workforce. Davis went on to show favor in Senator Johnson’s willingness to reach across party lines to share ideas and create solutions that benefit the public interests.

Matzel Manufacturing co-owners, Brian Nuetzel and Wayne Matthiesen, were pleased to have been the site of Senator Johnson and Alderman Davis visit. Nuetzel is especially pleased to see officials from the city, state, and federal levels actively talking about the issues most pressing to businesses like Matzel. “I’m happy to see our elected officials getting to the root cause of issues that affect each and every one of us”, said Matthiesen.
