CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) Governor Scott Walker made a stop at an area business Thursday.
The governor was at Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries in Chippewa Falls to take a tour and talk about his "Blueprint for Prosperity" plan.
He also recognized the business for being proactive by hiring skilled, local workers. The governor says it's companies like this that are leading the way, by exporting product and not jobs.
"EDI, what a great company booming here, it's great to see a company that's about 60% of what they do is exports, China, India, elsewhere around the world, it's nice to see exporting product and not jobs. This is a great company, great employees," says Walker.
Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries started as a four-person shop in 1971, and now employs about 270 people at its three Chippewa Falls locations.
