Kendall County Board Chairman Scott Gryder and Congressman Randy Hultgren, R-Plano, visited local manufacturers in Plano on March 6 to learn about products produced locally, and to hear any concerns at the local, state and federal level.
Plano Mayor Bob Hausler accompanied the men on the visits.
Chairman Gryder, Congressman Hultgren and Mayor Hausler first visited MTH Pumps.
President Tim Tremain gave the chairman, congressman and mayor a tour of his facility as well as a brief history.
Started in 1971, MTH Pumps has steadily grown over 40 years by providing excellent products to companies all over the world.
In addition, Tremain has continually participated in the community by taking local students and community groups on tours, providing internships and helping to develop trade skills programs across the county.
Gryder, Hultgren and Hausler also visited Fabtek.
President Mike Chesnutt led a tour of the facility while explaining Fabtek’s long history, from starting in the 1940s in Aurora until 2009 when he took over the company.
Fabtek is expanding as demand for its stainless-steel boilers continues to grow.
