Business Honored for Hiring Veterans

A Marquette Township cleaning business wins recognition for its commitment to hiring military veterans.

SCI Cleaning and Maintenance is the Michigan Works! Hire a Veteran Month Business of the Year.

Michigan Works! presented SCI with a plaque this morning in recognition of its efforts.

The honor came as a surprise to the company’s owner, Bill Fredy, who says he finds that veterans make great employees because of their work ethic discipline.

Congressman Dan Benishek, State Senator Tom Casperson and State Representative Steve Lindberg also sent accolades.

One out of every four SCI employees is a veteran.

The company has been in the commercial cleaning business in the Marquette area for more than 25 years.
