Congressman Rob Woodall (R-GA-7) recently visited Viscom’s facility in Duluth, GA for its 30th anniversary event. In commemoration of the milestone, Viscom staff, business partners and other members of the business community came together. Rep. Woodall’s visit was part of IPC’s “Meet the Policymakers” program, through which IPC government relations staff arrange opportunities for IPC members to host elected officials at company locations.

Viscom is one of the leading suppliers of high-quality inspection systems for electronic assemblies. “It is important for the manufacturing sector to reach out to policymakers and provide a first-hand look at our industry, and I want to personally express our appreciation to Congressman Woodall for taking the time to hear our perspectives,” said Carsten Salewski, CEO of Viscom.

Rep. Woodall toured the facility and discussed important policy and regulatory issues impacting the electronics manufacturing sector with staff members. Of particular importance was the Revitalize American Manufacturing and Innovation (RAMI) Act. The RAMI Act, recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, and similar legislation is awaiting Senate approval. The bill will establish multiple centers for manufacturing innovation, known as the Network for Manufacturing Innovation. These centers will focus on different technology areas to strengthen advanced manufacturing in the United States.
