PULASKI, Wis. (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker announced Tuesday that a Pulaski company will get community block grant money from the state.
Walker presented Marquis Yachts with a $2 million check to build freight containers for federal government agencies.
The project will create 379 new jobs as part of the governor's pledge to create 250,000 in Wisconsin during his first term.
“The decision by Marquis Yachts, LLC, Inc. is a positive sign for our state and especially good news for Brown County,” Governor Walker said. “I’m pleased that we could assist the company with this job-creating project.”
Great news just announced from WI!!!!Marquis YachtsMarquis Yachts are built by an elite, dedicated team of crafts people situated within our extensive Wisconsin (USA) campus. That's right, US-built. This enables us to isolate Marquis and maintain the high standards established for this class. Common resources such as transportation, handling and the indoor test center are shared for maximum efficiency.
Marquis Yachts are built to meet the European Community's Classification A Standard. That makes her one of very few domestic-built brands (that we're aware of) that has this distinction.
Another job well done for Governor Walker and his staff!!
