Quanex Hosts Lawmakers at Two Facilities

February 4, 2013

Continuing its advocacy efforts to engage lawmakers and support policies that are in the best interest of the window and door industry, as well as its local communities, Quanex Building Products recently hosted U.S. Congressman Bill Johnson, representing Ohio’s Sixth District, at its Cambridge, Ohio, facility.  The company’s facility in Yakima, Wash., also welcomed U.S. Congressman Doc Hastings, representing Washington’s Fourth District.

During these facility visits, the legislators spent time learning about Quanex’s role in the window and door industry, and its advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. In addition, they discussed the impact of the company’s energy-saving products within the window and door industry, officials reported.

“Job creation through advances in manufacturing is critically important to growing America's economy. Companies like Quanex, in Cambridge, that manufacture energy efficient products, are so important to bringing manufacturing jobs back to Eastern and Southeastern Ohio,” said Rep. Johnson. “Not only will these advanced manufacturing jobs help build a sustainable future by fulfilling the need for energy-efficient homes and commercial buildings, but they will also boost eastern Ohio’s manufacturing base.”

"I was pleased to see first-hand the innovative, energy efficient building materials Quanex produces,” said Rep. Hastings. “This is exciting news for Central Washington."
