Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday announced the creation of 30 new jobs at Spancrete’s headquarters in Waukesha, according to a news release from the governor’s office.
Spancrete, according to the release, will hire the employees within the next 45 days to keep up with the company’s workload. According to the concrete maker, it is recalling 55 to 60 laid-off workers and adding 30 more jobs, bringing its total workforce to 355.
Company president Alan Antoniewicz said the business climate seems to be steadying, and client projects that had been on hold are beginning to move forward.
In 2008, Spancrete laid off 105 employees at its Waukesha headquarters because of the loss of a major parking structure project in Illinois and the delay of a large Madison project. The company, according to the release, already has reinstated all employees who had previously been laid off.
