Partners, advisors and vendors hold Emteq Inc. and its chief executive officer, Jerry Jendusa, in high regard.

“Every time I go there, it’s just like being reborn into this business. It’s not smoke and mirrors. It’s people coming together from all of these backgrounds, putting together a company that is one of the best in the state of Wisconsin.”

– Keith Winters, Emteq board member and long-time business associate.

“In three years, (the company) is going to have more than $100 million (revenues). They will have to be looking at strategic alternatives for the structure of the company, whether it’s a public or private company. I definitely see more acquisitions, but I do not see Emteq deviating from the aviation, aerospace, civil and military markets.”

– Dave Smith, advisor to the board of directors at Emteq, retired aerospace industry executive.

“The exciting part for us has been Jerry’s commitment to the development of his people. Just how do you keep that small company feel in a company that is growing by leaps and bounds? How do you make decisions to place the right people on the bus to get you to the next stop? Taking Emteq from a small company with a few people wearing many hats to a larger company where processes and people development are critical to success is no small feat.”

– Linda Kiedrowski, president and CEO, The Paranet Group.

“He (Jendusa) has got great enthusiasm, and I don’t think his drive is for dollars. It’s simply that drive to grow and succeed. And he’s a very young player in this field. Most of his competitors are at least 60-plus.”

– Marshall Schumerhorn, president of Churchill Corp., a Melrose, Mass., manufacturer of avionics enclosures.
