U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson visited Exhibit Systems Wednesday, touring the exhibit and display company and speaking to employees about the tremendous challenges facing Washington, D.C., and the entire nation.
“We are extremely appreciative that Sen. Johnson accepted our invitation to visit Exhibit Systems,” said Dick Magliocco, president and owner, Exhibit Systems. “It’s an honor to be recognized by him as a growing company with solid roots in Wisconsin.”
Johnson, an accountant who spent his career in manufacturing before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, addressed the entire Exhibit Systems team before touring the plant’s design and production areas. He spoke of the need for greater fiscal discipline in Washington, D.C., outlining the challenges that lie ahead in coming decades.
“This is really the type of event I like to be involved in,” Johnson said. “It’s really the business owners, entrepreneurs and their employees who need to know and spread this information.”
Exhibit Systems, a premier exhibit and display company offering one-stop service for tradeshows and events, recently earned its second consecutive “Future 50” award from the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce.
“Our employees were thrilled at the opportunity to meet and talk directly with Sen. Johnson,” Magliocco said. “Given his background in private-sector industry, it was obvious that Sen. Johnson felt at home and enjoyed chatting with people who share his passion for business.”
