I think the city and its contractors have done a super job of cleaning up our city. There are still a lot of broken sidewalks, tree stumps/root balls and holes in streets but it all takes time. Thank you Kyle and Aldermen/Women for your quick action. Let's hope it doesn't ever happen again.

Or better yet, offer him a free garbage tote for the life of his contract..... That might have done the trick!! Sorry, I couldn't resist. I still feel bad for qnd to be in this position so close to the season. Bad deal!

QND knew how old he was and what his stability record was and what his coaching record was and they needed him at this time to get a great program started. You guys sound like the fans in "Hoosiers" when they hired that 'old' coach. Go back and watch it again. Again, I say 'too bad he didn't help them'. QND did the right thing to hire him. He just had to put his family and…

Quincy Compressor management in town this week

1 year, 1 month ago by Bob Gough

Quincy Compressor management will be in Quincy Tuesday and Wednesday for discussing the possibility of keeping their Quincy facility open and saving more than 150 jobs.

Mayor Kyle Moore, GREDF president Marcel Wagner and representatives from Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the Workforce Investment Board of Western Illinois and the International Machinists Union Local 822 spoke at a news conference this morning at Quincy City Hall.

Last month, Quincy Compressor announced it was considering closing the plant and moving operations to its U.S. headquarters in Bay Minette, Alabama. The plant was founded in Quincy in 1920 years ago.

In 2002, Goodrich Corporation (now UTC Aerospace Systems) spun off its Engineered Industrial Products business segment into a new company, EnPro Industries.The spinoff consisted of businesses that were originally owned by Coltec Industries, which had been purchased by Goodrich in 1998. Quincy Compressor was part of that spinoff

In 2010, Atlas Copco acquired Quincy Compressor from EnPro. Quincy Compressor has approximately 400 employees in Quincy, Alabama and China. 

Moore said the task force has a proposal prepared to present to Quincy Compressor. Wagner said not many communities get the opportunity to save a plant like this as many companies just leave. 

Moore said he couldn't comment about the specifics of the proposal. Jacqui Bevelheimer of DCEO said the state could provide tax and training incentives.

Ross Miller of the Machinists Union said he anticipated the company would seek a reduction in pay and benefits. He said he believed those benefits are about 30 percent less per employee in Alabama than in Illinois.
