During the recent visits of two US Congressmen at its facilities in Ohio and Washington, Quanex spoke about its role in the window and door industry and its advocacy efforts. The impact of the company’s energy-saving products within the window and door industry was also discussed.
Quanex Building Products continues 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. Recently, Quanex’s Cambridge, Ohio facility hosted US Congressman Bill Johnson, representing Ohio’s Sixth District, and the company’s Yakima, Wash. facility hosted US Congressman Doc Hastings, representing Washington’s Fourth District.
During these facility visits, they spent time learning about the 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, such as the window and door spacer systems manufactured at the plant.
“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 US Congressman 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.”
Both congressional leaders also received a plant tour where they had an opportunity to meet employees and engage with key personnel. Discussions included Quanex’s role in advancing the energy efficiency of window and door products, as well as new innovations on the horizon from Cambridge, Yakima and Quanex’s other facilities across the country.
“I was pleased to see first-hand the innovative energy efficient building materials Quanex produces,” said US Congressman Hastings. “This is exciting news for Central Washington.”
