Thompson Creek is proud to be an example of how manufacturing can thrive in America, create jobs and expand opportunities for the people of Maryland.
LANHAM, Md. (PRWEB) October 05, 2018
Maryland Congressman and House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer visited the Thompson Creek Window Company today to discuss the Make It in America initiative and tour the company’s fast-growing factory and office to learn more about how future policies can help businesses thrive. In addition, today is National Manufacturing Day, which is organized by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) to address labor opportunities, connect with future generations of manufacturers and ensure the success of the manufacturing industry.
In 2010, Congressman Hoyer helped create the Make it in America plan and recently unveiled an updated plan based on input from a listening tour across the country. “I enjoyed visiting the Thompson Creek Window Company today and touring their manufacturing facility to learn more about the work they are doing, which creates good jobs and helps grow our economy,” said Congressman Hoyer. “When I unveiled House Democrats’ updated Make It in America agenda in July, I spoke about the need for Congress to work together with local businesses and workers to help them get ahead. We ought to ensure our workers have the skills they need to find employment in today’s in-demand jobs, help small businesses innovate and compete in today’s market, and invest in 21st century infrastructure. I appreciate the work Thompson Creek is doing to facilitate manufacturing in our state.”
Thompson Creek President Rick Wuest said, “We were pleased to host Congressman Hoyer today and appreciate his efforts to promote manufacturing. Thompson Creek is proud to be an example of how manufacturing can thrive in America, create jobs and expand opportunities for the people of Maryland.”
