Today, U.S. Congressman Bob Dold (R-IL-10) met with executives and employees of IPC-member company Creation Technologies at the company’s manufacturing facility in Chicago, Illinois. Coordinated by IPC, the world’s leading association for electronics manufacturing companies, this visit is part of a nationwide effort to educate policymakers about legislative and regulatory issues that affect the electronics manufacturing industry.
“I am grateful to Creation Technologies and IPC for opening their doors today, giving me the opportunity to see firsthand the contributions that the electronics manufacturing industry makes to our economy,” said Congressman Dold. “As the fourth largest manufacturing district in the country, our workforce relies heavily on companies like Creation that are on the forefront of innovative new technologies.”
With facilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China, Creation Technologies has decades of experience designing, manufacturing, and providing customized supply chain solutions to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the world. The company’s Regional Manager, Ron Euer, hosted the site visit and led discussions on issues affecting the manufacturing industry, including fostering innovation, emerging markets, and regulatory compliance.
“On behalf of both Creation Technologies and IPC, I want to thank Congressman Dold for taking the time to visit our Chicago manufacturing facility today,” said Ron Euer. “Getting the opportunity to share our industry’s insights and experiences with him, in person, is a critical component of our longterm success. We are eager to keep working with him, and with IPC, to stimulate economic growth and innovation in Illinois and the U.S.”
Congressman Dold’s visit was part of IPC’s “Meet the Policymakers” program, through which IPC government relations staff arrange opportunities for IPC member-companies to host elected officials at company locations. This is the third visit in 2015 by a Member of Congress to Creation Technologies’ facilities.
