Recruiting quality employees

Thanks to the Visalia Economic Development Corporation (VEDC), we have been able to connect with other businesses and peer groups to share our concerns and identify needs from an industrial perspective. This has resulted in new training programs being offered, and we have been able to recruit and hire quality employees. We associate all of this with our membership in the VEDC and the VEDC’s Industrial Roundtable meetings. – Rodney Wilson, Plant Manager
