This is a company that has grown and adapted for more than 70 years,” said Risch. “Locally owned and operated, Fisher’s Technology has been listed as one of America’s fastest-growing company four of the last five years. In the process they have expanded from 46 employees in 2009 to 66 today, which is the sort of hiring pace our economy needs more of. I congratulate everyone at Fisher’s Technology on their success and wish them the very best in the future.”
