Governor Pat Quinn Recognizes Vintage Tech in "State of the State" Speech

We at Vintage Tech would like to thank Illinois Governor Pat Quinn for his recognition of us and our president Karrie Gibson in his speech, “State of the State: Moving Illinois Forward” on Feb. 1.

 

“Illinois is not only a land of skilled workers,” explained Quinn, “It’s also a land of creative entrepreneurs. People like Karrie Gibson and her company, Vintage Tech Recyclers in Romeoville.”

 

Earlier in his speech, Quinn reminded the State, “On the day I became Governor three years ago, I promised to restore integrity to Illinois government. And we have”

 

In fact, this year, thanks to the new Illinois landfill ban on electronics, the government has acknowledged Vintage Tech’s mission by making sure that electronics are responsibly recycled.

“We have invested in our state, making it a better place to do business,” Quinn stated. As a result of this, the governor explained, “Our investment helped Karrie grow her recycling technology business from 1 person to 77 employees.

 

“Thank you, Karrie.”

 

Thank you, Governor Quinn!
