Duperon Corporation Chosen as Site of Gubernatorial Candidate’s Announcement

Saginaw, MI – Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, Republican gubernatorial candidate, announced his long-term plan for Michigan’s economy at the offices of Duperon Corporation on Monday, March 8, 2010.

Duperon Corporation hosted the event at the invitation of the Bouchard campaign in the interest of continuing the conversation that seeks solutions for Michigan’s economic viability.

“We’re honored to have been highlighted as a successful small business in Michigan, and to enter into a dialogue about the vital role of business in our economy,” said Tammy Bernier, Duperon Corporation President and CEO. “Given the gap of where we are and where we could be in Michigan, we must unleash our well-proven creativity and entrepreneurship in business, education and government.”

“Duperon’s success is what I want to see duplicated across Michigan,” Bouchard said. “We need to get out of the way and help them, not punish them. Entrepreneurial companies like Duperon are the key to Michigan’s economic revival.” (Duperon Corporation has been growing at a rate of 25% yearly and currently employs 38 people from more than 10 area communities.)

Bouchard’s plan focuses on long-term success for Michigan and ensuring that job providers can and will succeed.

Duperon Corporation designs, engineers, markets, and manufactures process equipment for the water and wastewater industry based upon the patented technology of Terry Duperon, Chairman of the Board. The equipment removes debris from the water in front of stormwater pump stations, wastewater plants, fish screens, and industrial applications such as wineries.
