Governor Bruce Rauner supporting our growth in USA
During his recent trip to visit to the United States, Evac CEO Tomi Gardemeister was able to discuss with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner via telephone the plans to address the growth at Evac North America. The Governor offered his full support to addressing Evac’s needs and the importance in having companies like Evac investing in Illinois. Mr. Gardemeister expressed his appreciation to the Governor and acknowledged the importance of the 35+ year history Evac had with it’s employees and supply partners in the Northern Illinois area.
The following day a tour of Evac North America’s facility was given to State Senator Dave Syverson (far right bottom row), Belvidere Mayor Mike Chamberlain (second from right bottom row), and other local government representatives. A program was hosted by Brent Johnson (owner of the facility in which Evac North America operates – middle bottom row) and included a luncheon with open discussion including infrastructure improvement, business incentives, and state funded training.
