Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has pledged $46 million to help Quad/Graphics consolidate and expand in the state. The company will create up to 1,300 new jobs and retain 5,500 existing Wisconsin jobs. Quad/Graphics has headquarters in Sussex, Wisconsin.
"We are pleased to be bringing jobs to Wisconsin and building on the strong foundation we already have in place," said Joel Quadracci, chairman, president, and CEO of Quad/Graphics. "With our recent acquisition of Worldcolor, we are moving quickly to consolidate plants to create the most modern and efficient manufacturing platform. To that end, we are moving client work into our most efficient facilities. While we have many options on where we can place the work, a key factor for Wisconsin receiving the most significant portion is Governor Doyle's commitment to helping us retain and grow jobs."
The company will restart equipment it shut down in 2009. The state has designated Quad/Graphics as an Enterprise Zone, and it will receive the funds through Wisconsin's Enterprise Zone tax credit program.
