Milwaukee, WI, 53224

Press release date: August 19, 2014

MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) Board awarded its "Futuremakers Partner" award to Busch Precision, Inc., of Milwaukee on Tuesday night. The award recognizes the unique and dynamic partnerships between Wisconsin’s technical colleges and their employer partners.

Busch Precision specializes in machining, diagnostics and repair of manufacturing equipment, and is also a tool manufacturer. The firm – which does work in a wide array of industries, including manufacturing, mining, automotive and plastics – is a long-time partner with Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC). While MATC’s main campus is in Milwaukee, it also serves communities throughout the region, including Mequon, West Allis and Oak Creek.

"I firmly believe that any strong community is fueled by cooperation and quality education," said Busch Precision President CEO Mike Mallwitz. "MATC has been at the forefront of recognizing and serving the needs of the greater Milwaukee business community. This has been achieved by flexible and quality educational solutions," Mallwitz said.

"Busch Precision is a great, visionary partner," said WTCS President Morna Foy. "Mike and his team understand the value of advancing the careers of incumbent workers, while planning to ensure the next wave of new hires are ready to roll."

"Many Busch Precision associates have benefitted from our long-standing partnership with MATC, making our service to our community business partners far more effective," said Mallwitz.

Mallwitz is Vice Chair of the "Granville Business Improvement District (BID) 48," which covers an area of Milwaukee that includes more than 500 commercial, manufacturing and retail properties. Among other initiatives, Granville BID 48 is working to determine the educational needs of local businesses’ incumbent workforce. Last week, it recognized the first group of workers to complete training under a $15,000 WTCS Workforce Advancement Training Grant.

In addition, the System is the major provider of customized business solutions and technical assistance to Wisconsin employers. More than 340,000 individuals access the technical colleges for education and training each year.
