From the Janesville Gazette: “City among finalists for business that could create 100 jobs”— JANESVILLE –We’re in the running.

Janesville, Chippewa Falls and Stevens Point are being considered for a business that would create 100 jobs with the possibility of more in the future.

Greg Piefer, CEO of SHINE Medical Technologies, confirmed Tuesday that he had been in negotiations with Janesville officials.

“Janesville is a possibility,” Piefer said. “We’ve been very impressed by Janesville, by the city leadership.”
