CONGRESSMAN SCHNEIDER HOLDS TOWN MEETING AT IPC HEADQUARTERS Congressman Talks About Growth in Manufacturing

Dec 19, 2013

Industrial engineer and business consultant turned congressman, Representative Brad Schneider (IL-10) held a town hall meeting at IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® headquarters yesterday to hear about issues that concerned IPC employees and address their questions.

As one of just 13 members of Congress with a background in engineering, I love to talk about manufacturing,” said Schneider. The Congressman addressed IPC employees’ concerns covering a gamut of topics from education to conflict minerals to jobs and the economy. On a question about the negative trend in manufacturing in the U.S., Schneider believes “growth is possible,” by investing in the infrastructure with a focus on science and technology.

“IPC is grateful for the Congressman’s time and his genuine concerns in not only what’s important to our employees, but also the issues important to electronics manufacturers,” stated IPC President & CEO John Mitchell.  Rep. Schneider was supportive of IPC policy efforts earlier this year; most notably, as the lead Democratic sponsor of a bi-partisan letter to the EPA regarding the definition of solid waste (DSW) rule.
