Quad/Graphics Promised $46 Million in Assistance to Create Up to 1,300 New Jobs
Governor Doyle announced that Quad/Graphics has been designated as an Enterprise Zone, and the state is providing the company with $46 million through the new Enterprise Zone tax credit program. Doyle has used the powerful Enterprise Zones credits to help retain and create jobs at Bucyrus, Harley Davidson, Mercury Marine, Republic Airways, ULINE, Marinette Marine, Oshkosh Corporation, and now Quad/Graphics.
Since learning of the state’s offer, Quad/Graphics has already created more than 250 new jobs in Wisconsin in a few months’ time. In addition, the company is looking to immediately fill 260 full-time and
160 part-time positions throughout its network of Wisconsin facilities. The jobs include a wide range of production, administration and managerial positions, all of which are posted on the company’s Website at www.QG.com. In total, the company employs more than 6,700 people statewide in full-time and part-time positions.
This project builds on Governor Doyle’s efforts to position Wisconsin for future growth. Since taking office in 2003, Governor Doyle has worked aggressively to create and retain jobs in Wisconsin. Governor Doyle’s budget last year created some of the strongest economic development tools in the nation to help businesses create jobs and get people back to work. Wisconsin now has powerful new tax credits to help manufacturers create and retain jobs, new tools to help investors create start-ups, and new incentives to spur research and development.
