Mar 6, 2017

BROCKPORT, Pa. -- Today, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and Owens-Illinois, Inc. presented Rep. Glenn 'GT' Thompson (R-PA-05) the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence during an event at Owens-Illinois in Brockport, Pennsylvania.

“Congressman Thompson’s leadership on the Natural Resources and Education and the Workforce Committees provides an important voice for manufacturers,” said Bob Martini, Brockport Plant Manager.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the National Association of Manufacturers and to accept this award at Owens-Illinois,” Thompson said. “Since being elected to Congress, I have made it a priority to support legislation that is good for American manufacturing and job creation throughout Pennsylvania’s Fifth Congressional District. I remain committed to advancing common sense proposals that will strengthen the manufacturing sector keep good-paying, family-sustaining jobs right here at home.”

“Manufacturers in Pennsylvania and across the country are changing lives for the better—through the jobs we create and the products we make. Manufacturing is about improving the human condition, one innovation at a time,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Representative Thompson is helping to make our success possible by standing with manufacturers when it matters and casting the right votes.”

“Manufacturers employ over 12 million men and women in the U.S., who are making everything from lifesaving medicines to the most cutting edge technology. The strength of manufacturing in America is responsible for the success of America in the world. When manufacturing succeeds, America succeeds, so Representative Thompson’s consistent support for manufacturing means he is supporting a better future for all Americans.”

Key Votes included in the Voting Record are selected by small, medium and large manufacturing executives who serve on the NAM’s Key Vote Advisory Committee. Additional information on the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence can be found here
