Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) July 10, 2008
Worth & Company, Inc., a leading regional provider of mechanical contracting and maintenance services in the tri-state area, hosted Arizona Senator and presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain and his wife Cindy at the Company's headquarters in Pipersville, Pennsylvania on Monday afternoon, June 30, 2008 for a historic town hall meeting.
McCain was welcomed by Worth & Company's President & CEO, Stephen Worth and Chief Operating Officer, John Marrinucci; as well as state and local officials, including: Bucks County Republican Committee Chairman Harry Fawkes and Vice Chairman Pat Poprik; Bucks County Commissioners James Cawley and Charles Martin and U.S. Congressman 8th District (PA) candidate Tom Manion.
McCain toured Worth & Company's computer-aided design (CAD) department, manufacturing and pre-assembly facility and sheet metal manufacturing facility before heading into the Company's 45,000 square foot warehouse for the main event. The town hall meeting was standing room only with more than 1,000 attendees, many of whom were Worth & Company's employees and their family and close friends. McCain spoke and answered questions for approximately 40 minutes on subjects of national concern such as gas prices; health care reform; social security; and the war in Iraq.
Said Worth, "Worth & Company was honored to host John McCain and represent just one of the many growing and vibrant businesses in Bucks County, Pennsylvania." Senator McCain said the Company was "an American success story," and praised Worth for his leadership. The most lighthearted moment of the tour came when McCain stopped by a station that normally cuts metal to help create duct systems, and instead watched a Worth employee cut the words "McCain" out on a metal sheet, surrounded by a handful of stars. Steve Cantrell, Worth & Company's Mechanical Public Division Manager and U.S. Naval Academy graduate, made and presented McCain, also an Academy alumnus, with a replica of an early naval ship's compass with the words "Changing the Course" inscribed out of Pennsylvania maple wood.
