Governor Mead Visits with Local Business Leaders

Posted in

SHERIDAN, Wyo. -- Wyoming’s Governor Matt mead will be in the area Monday to meet with city and county leaders in Buffalo and tour businesses in Sheridan.

Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey, who asked the governor to come, said he’ll be taking the governor on a tour of manufacturing companies, like Emit, Vacutech and Ptolemy.

Emit makes catalytic converters for natural gas engines, Vacutech specializes in customized turbine vacuum systems and Ptolomy is a leader in integrated technologies and managed data center services.

The governor, most likely, will be particularly interested in Ptolomy, because of his ongoing push toward expansion of that particular business sector. In a recent release from his office, the governor said it’s been an ongoing initiative because he sees great potential for more data centers to locate in Wyoming.

He also believes that creating more access to high-speed internet will bring more opportunities to both businesses and individuals. He said the advance in technology has already played a part in the educational sector, noting that Ethernet connections in schools have grown from two to 27 since he took office just two years ago.

Prior to his visit in Sheridan, he'll be making a stop in Buffalo to talk to local leaders there. He'll be at the Johnson County Courthouse at 10:30 to talk with county officials and speak to the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce at noon at the Bozeman Trail Steakhouse.
