No one should overlook manufacturing in Ohio. We are the best in world at what we do and have remained viable in the market for years. ~Rodney Curtis

Republican Congressman Jim Jordan from the fourth congressional district visited American Trim's Sidney location in late April. Congressman Jordan has been serving Ohio since 2007. His career in office has focused on taxpayer's issues and government spending. He has gained recognition from such committees as Citizens Against Government Waste, Americans for Tax Reforms, and received the Friend of the Taxpayer Award. Jordan has scheduled trips to local businesses to show his support and see how he can continue to help these companies succeed.
Upon arrival in Sidney, Congressman Jordan's team began their tour by stopping in at the Communicator meeting. He addressed those attending the meeting and fielded questions.
The tour continued into the plant making stops in the heavy truck components production area and the appliance forming and assembly areas. At each stop Jordan was able to see parts that are manufactured and speak to the employees that are involved in the process. Rodney Curtis, Plant Manager, Sidney Operations, recognizes the importance of these types of visits, “No one should overlook manufacturing in Ohio. We are the best in world at what we do and have remained viable in the market for years. We need to keep the “field of play” fair; we’ll be around for many more years as well. Congressman Jordan was overwhelmed to see the wide range of our different products and processes, along with the capital investments we are making. He appreciates what we are doing and understands our position.”
This visit to American Trim allowed Congressman Jordan to gain more familiarity with the issues faced by manufacturing companies and then consider those companies and issues as he makes decisions going forward.
