July 18, 2009  | 


(L-R) David Dumke, Chairman of the Wisconsin State Use Board; Mary Hardtke, Executive Director of Headwaters, Inc.; David Lurio, President of Elbeco, Inc.

Elbeco Incorporated has received the 2009 State Use Program Partnership Award for its work with Headwaters, Inc., a not-for-profit work/rehabilitation center that helps people with developmental and physical disabilities find gainful employment. Elbeco and Headwaters partnered on a contract to provide the State of Wisconsin with correctional officer uniforms. Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle presented the award in a ceremony at the state capitol July 9, 2009.

In a letter to Elbeco, Wisconsin State Use Board Chairperson Dale Dumke wrote, "The Board believes this type of contractual partnering creates a basis for economic growth and good works by improving standards of living and advancing causes important to the well-being of Wisconsinites."

"We're honored to receive this award," said Elbeco President David Lurio. "It's a pleasure and a privilege for us to work with Headwaters to give disabled people the opportunity to meet their own potential. This partnership-along with our domestic production facilities, our hundreds of union-represented employees, and our membership in the SweatFree Coalition-illustrates our appreciation for and commitment to America's rich manufacturing heritage as well as the communities that we serve."
