Utility distributor named Business of the Year

Oct. 11, 2013

DUECO Inc, the largest final-stage manufacturer of Terex aerial bucket trucks and digger derricks, was recognized as the 2013 Waukesha County Executive’s Business of the Year during an awards luncheon held October 10 in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The company was selected by an independent panel of judges representing the County Executive’s office that included community leaders, area business executives and past award winners who assessed each nominee regarding how they meets the needs of taxpayers, customers, investors, employees, and the community at large.

DUECO customers include investor-owned utilities, electrical contractors, municipalities and co-ops and members of the tree care, forestry and signage industries. DUECO also sells a line of utility truck bodies nationwide. The company is led by third generation President, Judie Taylor and her sister, Marikris O’Grady, executive vice president. The organization is women owned and has applied for certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise and expects to achieve that status in December 2013.
